BENEFITS OF THE REINFORCED ENDOTRACHEAL TUBE – BEVEL POSTERIOR FACING
Designed to be used (railroaded) over a bougie or fibreoptic scope or with a stylet( shown to improve first-attempt intubation success in multiple studies ) or for endotracheal intubation through an intubating laryngeal mask airway.
Compatible with the Genesis Oral /Nasal endotracheal tube pack allowing retrograde nasal intubation if needed for maxilla-facial surgery or securing the endotracheal tube for patient transport without the need for extubation and re-intubation.
A reinforced endotracheal tube with a posterior facing bevel provides a greater initial success rate of intubation when railroaded over a bougie or fibreoptic scope.
Genesis endotracheal tubes have high volume low pressure cuffs and curved atraumatic tips centring endotracheal tube on bougie and eliminating gap between bevel and bougie preventing laryngeal hang up.
Genesis reinforced endotracheal tubes are manufactured from soft, smooth non-stick PVC to allow easy passage over a bougie or fiberoptic scope.
