Introducing Ambu® aScopeTM 4 Broncho
A new single-use, high quality bronchoscope and our latest proof of ideas that work for life
Flexible bronchoscopes are difficult to clean and disinfect due to their long, narrow lumens and delicate materials. The question is whether it is possible to ensure a clean scope after reprocessing.
The true incidence of cross-contamination and infection during flexible bronchoscopy is likely under-recognized.
Successful airway management can make the difference between life and death. The new generation of single-use visualization devices from Ambu all play a role in assisting the clinician to be successful, whether confronted with a routine or a difficult airway, a single lung ventilation procedure, or a bedside bronchoscopy in the ICU.
The combination of capital investment, repair and reprocessing of reusable bronchoscopes adds up to a per-use cost that is more than hospital staff often realize.
Do you know the true cost of using a reusable bronchoscope?
Insufficient availability of equipment for management of the difficult airway and bronchoscopy is considered among the major causative factors contributing to poor patient outcomes.
Think about it — do you always have immediate access to a flexible bronchoscope when you need it?
The future of endoscopy starts now
The single most important question in healthcare today is how to improve patient outcomes with the resources available. And as the world population increases and life expectancy expands, the pressure mounts on hospital budgets, workflow efficiency and, ultimately, patient safety.
Flexible endoscopes raise specific problems because they are costly to purchase, reprocess and repair, they are not always available when you need them, and their use risks exposing patients to infections.
We believe that the challenges in flexible endoscopy should be addressed with single-use devices, and for more than a decade, we have been harnessing the technology.
