Utilizing video laryngoscopy can improve first time intubation compared to standard intubations. Video assisted intubation can be 5 times less likely to perform an esophageal intubation.
There are a number of benefits associated with VL over DL intubations:
Difficult intubations occur during approximately 2% of routine anesthetic cases, and as high as 7-10% in pre-hospital
The APA™, inspired and designed by clinicians, is an all-in-one device for both routine and rescue airways that offers interchangeable Macintosh and Difficult Airway blades.
The APA™ as an effective difficult airway tool that has:
The 3.5" high-resolution viewing screen provides real-time, wide-angle viewing during the intubation procedure.
The adjustable swivel connection can aid in finding best line-of-sight so the clinician can have the best access to the airway.
Six blade variations are available: MAC 3 and 4 Macintosh style blades, MIL 1 and 2 Pediatric and Adult Miller style blades and DAB and U-DAB, for your difficult airways.
A high-intensity LED light source at the distal tip provides a clear image of the laryngeal structure.
