          Abstract

          Emergency ventilation through a small-bore transtracheal catheter can be lifesaving in a 'cannot intubate, cannot ventilate' situation. Ejectors, capable of creating suction by the Bernoulli principle, have been proposed to facilitate expiration through small-bore catheters. In this bench study, we compared a novel, purpose-built ventilation ejector (DE 5) with a previously proposed, modified industrial ejector (SBP 07).
