Study: Superior setup, more convenient, cost-minimising

Disposable rhinolaryngoscopes provide an alternative to reusable systems. A study by Walczak et al., 20201 rated aScope 4 RhinoLaryngo Slim better overall than reusable rhinolaryngoscopes and came to the following conclusions about the single-use solution:

  • Superior setup rating in terms of convenience of setup compared to reusable rhinolaryngoscopes, and rated better overall.
  • More convenient rating compared to reusable rhinolaryngoscopes in regard to obtaining, transporting and disposing of the scope within the hospital.
  • Cost-minimizing compared to reusable rhinolaryngoscopes for inpatient consults. aScope RhinoLaryngo: A cost-minimizing alternative for inpatient consults.

Emergency department consultations

Flexible laryngoscopies and airway examinations are common procedures performed as a part of consults3 in emergency settings. During high-demand situations and out of hours, when there are limited resources for disinfection of equipment, having a readily available single-use solution is of great benefit.

aScope 4 RhinoLaryngo is always available

The single-use plug and play Ambu solution allows you to transport and set up the endoscope and monitor quickly. The endoscopic image appears in seconds, and you can take photos and videos for documentation purposes.

The video monitor supports knowledge sharing, training and confirmation of findings by senior doctors. And when you are done, you only need to discard the product.

Due to its light weight, the aScope 4 RhinoLaryngo is the ideal solution to have on ENT Carts and/or Emergency ENT Bags. The solution is immediately ready for use and can be easily transported throughout the hospital.
