97% of flexible ENT endoscopy procedures performed satisfactorily

How do otorhinolaryngologists rate Ambu® aScope 4 RhinoLaryngo Slim?

In a recent study, 117 otorhinolaryngologists from eight different countries were invited to use the single-use scope on patients already scheduled for endoscopic ENT procedures, including nasal endoscopy, laryngoscopy and pharyngoscopy. Immediately following the procedure, the participants filled out a form rating performance and usability. The majority of the procedures were performed satisfactorily.

Positive maneuverability, image, and functionality ratings
In addition, the doctors expressed positive opinions regarding the maneuverability and image quality of the scope. The image quality was assessed using the Ambu® aView™ monitor. While the results were positive, an even better outcome would be expected with the new Ambu aView™ 2 Advance monitor.
