Bougie 5 mm OD 700 mm length

The Bougie is a straight, semirigid stylette like device with a bent tip that can be used when intubation is expected to be difficult often helpful when the tracheal opening is anterior to the visual field. During laryngoscopy, the bougie is carefully advanced into the larynx and through the cords until the tip enters a mainstem broncus. While maintaining the laryngoscope and Bougie in position, an assistant threads an ETT over the end of the bougie, into the larynx. Once the ETT is in place, the bougie is removed.

Usage instructions

1. Select the right size endotracheal tube you plan to intubate.
2. Lubricate introducer with KY jelly.
3. Perform laryngoscopy. If cords not visible, identify landmarks to aid intubation.
4. Place introducer into the pharynx and direct into larynx. If necessary, bend the introducer to negotiate the corner. Correct placement may be confirmed by detection of tracheal clicks and hold up of the bougie - no hold up indicates oesophageal placement.
5. Leave laryngoscope in place while assistant threads endotracheal tube over introducer into trachea. If tube sticks at the laryngeal inlet, a 90 degree counter clockwise rotation may help.
6. Hold the tube firmly in place and gently withdraw the introducer.
7. Remove laryngoscope and confirm tube placement as usual.
8. If preferred, the endotracheal tube may be placed over the introducer prior to intubation, instead of using stylet.
9. Watch the video below for practical demo

Of good quality and sturdy material. Coude tip is not as bent as on picture and no centimeter markings bit of a let down, but overall a great product. Definitely recommended to buy.
