Insufficient availability of equipment for management of the difficult airway in the OR, ER and ICU was considered among the major causative factors contributing to poor outcomes in the NAP4 survey conducted in the UK. In the ICU, access to a flexible scope for airway management was a recurrent problem.
The Ambu® aScope™ 3 line are single-use, flexible videoscopes that challenge conventions in flexible airway endoscopy, offering immediate availability, cost-efficiency and sterility straight from the pack.
Ambu® aScope™ 3 is suitable for a wide range of endoscopic procedures in the OR, ER and ICU. In July 2013 NICE (UK) issued the NICE guidance MTG 141 supporting the use of the aScope 2 in the OR and ICU settings as availability is likely to improve outcomes and patient safety.
Two significant challenges in modern healthcare are how to make life-saving equipment available and how to reduce infection risk at hospitals. In these two interviews you can hear how the single-use videoscope – Ambu® aScope™ 3 – improves patient care at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and the University Hospital of Cologne.
