Challenges of using bronchoscopy platforms from different providers in the ICU
ICUs typically use a single-use bronchoscopy solution for basic procedures to benefit from the portability, availability and sterility, and a different reusable solution for advanced procedures where physicians prefer a high-performance bronchoscope. This, however, can lead to situations where you have to:
- Transport a tower from the bronchoscopy suite
- Delay procedures waiting for a reusable bronchoscope to return from cleaning or repairs
- Use precious staff time on cleaning/reprocessing reusable bronchoscopes
- Accept infection risks associated with reusable bronchoscopes
- Spend time setting up and learning to use multiple systems and tools
What if you had one reliable single-use bronchoscopy solution for a range of ICU procedures from basic to advanced?
The integrated Ambu bronchoscopy portfolio includes single-use bronchoscopes, an easy-to-use, portable Full HD endoscopy system, and a unique closed-loop BAL sampling solution.
Ambu® aScope™ 5 can be used for procedures that are considered more complex, such as percutaneous tracheostomy, hemoptysis, cryotherapy, transbronchial biopsies and foreign body removal.
According to this comparative study, many of the attributes of aScope 5 Broncho are comparable or even superior to reusable flexible bronchoscopes.
Ambu® aScope™ 4 can be used for basic procedures such as airway inspection, BAL/BW, flexible bronchoscopic intubation and therapeutic aspiration.
