i-Bougie

SKU: 33-70-700-1
The versatile introducer to facilitate difficult intubation

Failure to provide oxygen to patients is a leading cause of death and major morbidity directly attributable to anesthesia. Difficult direct laryngoscopy (Cormack & Lehane grades 2 or 3) is encountered in 1 to 18% of patients. Assisting intubation and delivering oxygen at the same time, during direct laryngoscopy, is a safe manoeuver to reduce the risk of failures (CICO scenario). 

i-Bougie
 is a very effective device to facilitate orotracheal intubation in patients where visualisation of the glottis is inadequate.

Features

Oxygenation
• 2 types of OConnectors available all the time
• Allows oxygen flow through the lateral openings at the distal tip

Patient Safety
• Atraumatic distal tip
• Rounded and angled tip with lateral openings

Direct Laryngoscopy
• To facilitate orotracheal intubation in patients where visualisation of the glottis is inadequate.

Exchange Technique
• Studies mention the possibility of orotracheal intubation during the exchange of a Laryngeal Tube*.
