The Adult SCRAM® (Structured Critical Airway Management) Bag
The adult SCRAM bag is an Emergency Airway Bag providing a structured approach to airway management when getting it right first time really matters. It forms a system of advanced preparation and organisation of equipment and drugs; promoting the delivery of safe, timely, and well-governed pre-hospital emergency anaesthesia
The adult SCRAM bag is equipped with an integrated kit dump, which is removable so it can be prepared when the bag is stocked, checked and then sealed ready to go. This ensures consistency across a service if many bags are used and reduces the risk of error during the delivery of treatment. It forms a system of high-end preparation, and organisation. The kit dump has a guide printed on so you know exactly where to store equipment and drugs. It can be removed and fastened back onto the bag via hook and loop.
Inside the adult SCRAM bag, the customer will also find a checklist pouch in which a checklist can be folded in so they can double check the equipment inside when being stocked for use to ensure everything is where it should be. There are also elasticated storage loops of various sizes to hold equipment and drugs in place. The bag makes use of contrasting colours to draw attention to the kit dump, certifying that it stands out in an emergency. The bag also has lockable tamper proof zip sliders which are compatible with tamper proof locks which means the customer can be confident nothing inside is being tampered with.
The bag is made from our exclusive micrAgard™ material, which is durable, anti-microbial, flame retardant and water resistant which adds an extra layer of security, protecting the equipment inside from water, flame and infection. The inner lining and elasticated loops are also treated which adds further defence against infection. The bag has heat transfer reflective printing on the front which is highly visible in the dark when light is shone onto it.
