Description

The SSCOR DuCanto Catheter is a new catheter that is unlike traditional Yankauer suction tips that are designed for controlled surgical settings. The SSCOR DuCanto Catheter was developed with both routine and emergency airway management in mind. It has a larger internal diameter making it significantly less likely to clog and is shaped to fit the oropharyngeal anatomy. The hyper curved catheter is shaped more like a patient's airway making it easy to position the catheter and work with other complementary devices used to clear a patient's airway.

"In contrast to general purpose rigid suction catheters based on the Yankauer design, this product is intended to serve as a simple and effective tool to support routine and emergency airway management."
- James C. DuCanto, M.D.

Additionally, the SSCOR DuCanto Catheter does not have a thumb port. By removing the vacuum control, the caregiver does not need to locate and keep their thumb correctly positioned over the thumb port to clear a patient’s airway and allows for continuous suction once connected to the suction source.

All of these features enable the SSCOR DuCanto Catheter to be used effectively in the SALAD technique.

The SALAD (Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination) technique calls for constant suction provided by a catheter in the upper airway, continuously removing vomit, blood and other materials, around which the practitioner intubates the patient via either direct or video laryngoscopy. The SSCOR DuCanto Catheter is ideal for this procedure.

What is the SALAD Technique?
The SALAD (Suction Assisted Laryngoscopy and Airway Decontamination) technique calls for constant suction provided by a catheter (in this case, the SSCOR DuCanto Catheter, developed by Dr. DuCanto and SSCOR, Inc.) in the upper airway, continuously removing vomit, blood and other materials, around which the practitioner intubates the patient via either direct or video laryngoscopy.

Who Developed this Technique?
The SALAD Technique was developed by Dr. James C. DuCanto. Dr. DuCanto is passionate about airway management and minimizing the risks of aspiration and its subsequent effects. He is an anesthesiologist with 20 years’ experience. Dr. DuCanto works at the Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where he serves as a staff anesthesiologist, Director of the Simulation Center, and director of the Anesthesiology rotation for students and residents.

Why is the SALAD Technique important?
What a difference effective suctioning can make to the resuscitated patient.  Effective suctioning clears the view for the care giver executing the intubation.  It removes material that otherwise might enter the lower airway.  Aspiration of foreign material can cause pneumonia slowing recovery or resulting in death.
