STEERABLE TRACHEAL INTUBATION GUIDE (S.T.I.G) (Formally Flexible Tip Bougie)
Standard introducers are invaluable instruments, especially when facing difficult to manage airways, but sometimes they are just not enough. The ability to steer the tip of the introducer is a game-changer, making navigating the airway so much easier. Whether you use DL or VL, the S.T.I.G. will help you find the way. Simply hold the S.T.I G between you thumb and your forefinger, and then use your thumb to move the integrated tab slider up and down to flex or retro-flex the tip of this innovative new introducer from Construct Medical.
- Flexible, steerable tip makes it easier to navigate difficult airways. - Tabs are easy to grip and manoeuvre even with gloves. - Slider tabs situated so they will not need to pass through vocal cords. - Blunt silicone tip reduces the risk of tracheal trauma. - Bright phosphorous coating on tip makes it highly visible, especially with the ultra-violet lights used in some laryngoscopes. - Introduce with anterior flexion, straighten to advance the tube or retro-flex if needed. - Size 15Ch x 65 cm (length), with graduation marks from 10 to 50 cm. - Improves intubation, saving time, leading to fewer complications. - No latex materials used in the construction of the S.T.I.G.
