The ideal bronchoscope for single-lung ventilation

Always Sterile. Always Available.

Narrow design

The narrower design of the single-use Ambu® aScope 3™ Slim makes it ideal for placing double lumen tubes and bronchial blockers. Complicated reprocessing procedures and the fear of mechanical damage become a thing of the past.
 

No repair and reprocessing

No concern in regard to mechanical scope damage or long reprocessing circles - aScope 3 Slim eliminates high repair costs as well as any limitations caused by complex reprocessing.

A higher level of practicality

The aScope 3 line is easy and fast to set-up and use. After use it can just be discarded.

No risk of cross-contamination

Routine cleaning procedures do not always remove biofilm from reusable scope channels2. The aScope 3 line eliminates any risk of cross-contamination.

 

 

 

 

An ideal alternative for thoracic anaesthesia

Lung separation

One-lung ventilation is performed for most thoracic surgical procedures by using a double-lumen endobronchial tube (DLT) or a bronchial blocker (BB). Evidence strongly suggests the use of a flexible endoscope to confirm the correct position of a DLT as opposed to auscultation alone is regarded as best practice. “The most accurate method for confirmation of left-sided DLT placement is fiberoptic bronchoscopy.”1
Clinical evidence shows a higher success rate and possibly reduced incidents of complication for the placement of DLT’s when using a flexible scope.

Ideal for confirmation of correct DLT position

aScope 3 Slim can be passed through DLT’s of FR 37 or greater. Its ultra-thin insertion tube diameter of 3,8 mm, makes aScope 3 Slim ideally suited for the placement, position confirmation and potential repositioning of a DLT.

Safe placement of Bronchial Blockers

Likewise the aScope 3 Slim enables a safe placement and position check of Bronchial Blockers (BB) of sizes 5-9.
