An emergency cricothyrotomy is a surgical procedure used to gain prompt access to a compromised or inaccessible airway. A recent study showed the three-step cricothyroidotomy is a faster procedure, potentially resulting in less end-organ hypoxia and better chances for long-term survival.1 The H&H Tactical Cricothyrotomy Kit provides the tools needed to perform this procedure in extreme circumstances.
H&H Medical Corporation produces innovative, cost-effective military-grade medical bandages and trauma solutions based out of its factory headquarters in Ordinary, VA. Nearly fifteen years ago, President Dr. Robert H. Harder, a professional engineer with years of government and contracting experience, brought H&H to the combat first aid environment for the Marine Corps. Now, the company works closely with military, civilian and commercial customers to engineer and develop smart and affordable real-world solutions.
