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.
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, centering the endotracheal tube on the 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.
