Portex® GRIGGS® Percutaneous Dilation Tracheostomy Kit (International)

Portex®

The Portex® GRIGGS® Percutaneous Dilation Tracheostomy Kits feature guidewire dilating forceps, central to the Griggs™ PDT technique, for smoothly opening the tracheal aperture.

The Portex® Griggs™ PDT kit is available in three options:

Portex® GRIGGS® Percutaneous Dilation Tracheostomy Kit with Blue Line Ultra® Tracheostomy Tubes

  • Tapered tip intended to ease passage into stoma
  • Clear, soft flange and Profile Soft-Seal® cuff
Portex® GRIGGS® Percutaneous Dilation Tracheostomy Kit with Blue Line® Tracheostomy Tubes
  • Low pressure, high volume cuffed tracheostomy tube or adjustable flange tracheostomy tube
Portex® GRIGGS® Percutaneous Dilation Tracheostomy Kit with Blue Line Ultra® Suctionaid® Tracheostomy Tubes
  • Integral suction lumen to aid removal of secretions from above the cuff
  • Clear, soft flange and Profile Soft-Seal® cuff
Speed
  • Guidewire dilating forceps produce the desired opening in one fluid motion, compared with single stage dilators which typically require repeated forward and backward movement.
  • Spreading the jaws of the guidewire dilating forceps applies force laterally across the anterior tracheal wall, intended to cause reduced trauma to tracheal structures.
Efficiency
  • Perform the procedure at the point of care (ICU/CCU), when you and your patient are ready - no waiting.
  • Patients receive tubes and the related therapeutic benefits sooner than with surgical placement.
Cost
  • No need to tie up valuable surgical suite time, staff and resources.
  • Two operators (minimum)- one for the procedure and an assistant to maintain the patient's airway and control the bronchoscope.
  • Patient preparation, procedure and recovery all in one location.
