Study shows positive impact of aScope 4 Rhinolaryngo
ENT residents perceive reduced burden
A study presented at the Annual Meeting of the Danish Society of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery found that ENT residents perceived that aScope 4 RhinoLaryngo significantly reduced the organizational burden when conducting consult procedures in the emergency department.
Two key factors
- With the single-use aScope RhinoLaryngo, there is no deterioration because you get a new scope for every procedure.
- The ability to record images and videos may facilitate better communication between the clinician and the patient as well as the clinician and their colleagues.
Superior setup, more convenient, cost-minimising
A resident survey and cost-analysis published in Investigative Otolaryngology has found that the single-use aScope RhinoLaryngo compares favourably to reusable rhinolaryngoscopes.
Disposable rhinolaryngoscopes provide an alternative option to reusable systems. A study by Walczak et al., 2020 rated aScope 4 RhinoLaryngo Slim better overall than reusable rhinolaryngoscopes, and came to the following conclusions about the single-use solution:
- Superior setup rating in terms of convenience of setup compared to reusable rhinolaryngoscopes, and rated better overall.
- More convenient rating compared to reusable rhinolaryngoscopes in regard to obtaining, transporting and disposing of the scope within the hospital.
- Cost-minimizing compared to reusable rhinolaryngoscopes for inpatient consults. aScope RhinoLaryngo: A cost-minimizing alternative for inpatient consults.
97% of flexible ENT endoscopy procedures performed satisfactorily
How do otorhinolaryngologists rate Ambu® aScope™ 4 RhinoLaryngo Slim?
In a recent study, 117 otorhinolaryngologists from eight different countries were invited to use the single-use scope on patients already scheduled for endoscopic ENT procedures, including nasal endoscopy, laryngoscopy and pharyngoscopy. Immediately following the procedure, the participants filled out a form rating performance and usability. The majority of the procedures were performed satisfactorily.
Positive manoeuvrability, image and functionality ratings
In addition, the doctors expressed positive opinions regarding the manoeuvrability and image quality of the scope. The image quality was assessed using the Ambu® aView™ monitor. While the results were positive, an even better outcome would be expected with the new Ambu aView™ 2 Advance monitor.
