Training of intubation and bronchoscopy skills
Today, a lack of equipment and fear of damaging expensive scope systems act as barriers to training, flexible intubation and bronchoscopy skills.
Training is crucial
The lack of proper training in the use of equipment was considered a major causative or contributing factor to poor patient outcome in the 4th National Audit report completed in the UK.1
The report further concluded that enhanced intubation and bronchoscopy skills of staff can lead to improved patient safety.
The ideal scope for intubation and bronchoscopy training
As a single-use flexible bronchoscope, aScope 4 Broncho facilitates access to and practice of flexible intubation and bronchoscopy skills without doctors having to fear damage to an expensive reusable scope.
aScope 4 Broncho offers the same features and advantages of conventional bronchoscope systems. The working channel and selection of three different sizes allows for training and education on a wide range of bronchoscopy procedures.
And when the training is done, simply discard the bronchoscope without worrying about costly repairs, cleaning and reprocessing.
Ambu® aView™ is a portable high resolution monitor that is compatible with all of the Ambu single-use flexible scopes and tubes for One Lung Ventilation.
The clear, high resolution images make navigation and identification of anatomical landmarks easy. Together with aScope 4 Broncho, aView offers a good colour representation reflecting lung tissue colours.
The user interface is intuitive to use and allows images and videos to be stored for later reference and evaluation.
