Secretion management

Improve patient care with the single-use aScope 4 Broncho

Management of retained secretion and atelectasis

One of the most common uses of bronchoscopy in the ICU is for the management of retained secretions and atelectasis. Although not a first choice therapy for routine pulmonary toilet, bronchoscopy is often considered in cases of acute lobar collapse or acute atelectasis involving more than one lung segment. Visual guidance using a bronchoscope is often recommended as this ensures an efficient and safe removal of secretion without the risk of damaging the bronchial mucosa.1

Efficient suction capacity for secretion management

With a suctioning channel diameter of up to 2.8 mm, aScope 4 Broncho Large is the ideal alternative to reusable bronchoscopes for secretion management.
