Cook Medical G07833 - CATHETER, AIRWAY EXCHANGE, C-CAE-8.0-45, EACH
Cook Airway Exchange Catheter
The Cook Airway Exchange Catheter is a blunt-tipped radiopaque catheter with centimeter markings to facilitate placement. The catheter is supplied with a Rapi-Fit Adapter (with either a 15 mm connector or a Luer lock connector), permitting use of ventilatory devices during exchange procedure.
Unlike traditional stylets used to facilitate tube exchange, Cooks airway exchange catheters are hollow to permit oxygen delivery if necessary. They are also available in different size options and materials to accommodate varying clinical needs.

Instructions for Use (Use of Rapi-Fit Adapter)
A ventilatory device may be used at any time during the endotracheal tube exchange procedure by utilizing the attached Rapi-Fit Adapter.
- To attach Rapi-Fit Adapter, position the adapter on catheter, then push the white collar forward and lock into position.
NOTE: Use of a high-pressure oxygen source should only be considered if the patient has sufficient egression of the insufflated gas volume.
- To remove the adapter, pull the white collar back to release, then remove from catheter.
- Attention should be paid to insertion depth of catheter into patients airway and correct tracheal position of replacement endotracheal tube. Markers on the Cook Airway Exchange Catheter refer to distance from tip of catheter. Catheter and endotracheal tube should not be advanced beyond the carina.
- Ensure proper sizing of the Cook Airway Exchange Catheter within a double-lumen endotracheal tube. Failure to do so may cause small fragments to be shaved off during removal of the Cook Airway Exchange Catheter.
- To avoid barotrauma, ensure that the tip of the CAE catheter is always above the carina, preferably 2-3 cm.
- The product is intended for use by physicians trained and experienced in airway management techniques. Standard techniques for placement and exchange of endotracheal tubes should be employed.
- This product is not intended for intravascular use.
