Planning for the unexpected in ER

The perfect choice

In planning for the unexpected the single-use videoscopes Ambu® aScope™ 3 and 
aScope™ 3 Slim together with the King Vision® video laryngoscope are the perfect choice for all types of intubation - Ready to use whenever and wherever you need them.

Standards are changing

The standards in airway management are changing – The clinical airway community is increasingly embracing visualisation devices to enhance patient safety and control costs. This trend is further accelerated as clinical studies document the benefits of using advanced visualisation equipment. It is also reflected in the latest guidelines – Both the ASA guidelines on Difficult Airway Management and the extensive NAP 4 Report from the UK underline the importance of adding visualisation devices to the toolbox in airway management.

Difficulty in managing the airway is the single most important cause of major anaesthesia related morbidity and mortality.

An ideal alternative for difficult airway

Insufficient availability of equipment for management of the difficult airway and the proper training in the use of this equipment were considered among major causative or contributing factors to poor outcomes. Immediate access to a fibrescope for airway inspection or for difficult airway management was a recurrent problem 1

Expect – Plan – Act

Sometimes a situation arises – expected or unexpected – that calls for extra high levels of expertise. Difficult airway algorithms have found their way into practice as a powerful tool that can help navigate clinicians through such critical situations. Knowing which devices to turn to in specific situations and having trained properly in the techniques of these devices can make the difference.

The Ambu range visualisation devices allow clinicians to have a versatile toolbox for every situation - expected or unexpected – that can be implemented at an affordable cost. Depending on patient pre-anesthesia evaluation and the desired approach to intubation, Ambu offers simplicity and flexibility, whether it is the Ambu aScope 3 is used for an awake intubation or the King Vision® is preferred for an anterior airway.
