EndoFlex™ cuffed tracheal tube (low pressure tapered cuff with Murphy Eye)

EndoFlex™ specially facilitates video guided intubation. It solves the problem of not being able to steer the tube through the vocal cords in spite of perfect view.

With EndoFlex you have full control over the curve and tip position of the tube making it easy to guided it without the use of a stylet.

EndoFlex makes it easier to pass the ET tube without stylus.

Features

Endoflex tube has all the same features as a standard Endotracheal tube:

  • McGill curve
  • Universal connector
  • Placement guide
  • Inflation line
  • Pilot balloon with self sealing valve
  • High/low inflation cuff

It can be used in exactly the same way as normal tube intubation however, unlike standard tubes it enbale you to quickly and safely adjust and temporarily lock the tip into an angled position when you encounter a difficult intubation without switching tubes or using a stylet.  Adjust the EndoFlex tip pass through the vocal cords, release the friction lock and wait two seconds to allow the tip to return to it´s relaxed position and then you can continue with the intubation.

Available in sizes 4 - 10
