Automated Endotracheal Intubation

This cutting-edge technology redefines the intubation process by guiding the endotracheal tube into the airway with exceptional precision.

The Need

Intubation is a critical medical procedure used to assist patients with breathing difficulties, executed through the insertion of an endotracheal tube (ET) into the windpipe. With over 313 million annual intubation procedures worldwide, ensuring first-pass success and minimizing complications is paramount. Current intubation methods carry significant risks, with post-procedure clinical events occurring in 45.2% of patients. The need for a safer and more successful intubation solution is evident.

The Technology

Introducing an innovative automated ET intubation device powered by twisted and coiled polymers (TCP). This cutting-edge technology redefines the intubation process by leveraging TCP to guide the endotracheal tube into the airway with exceptional precision. By enhancing placement accuracy and reducing the risk of trauma to the patient's airway, this device significantly improves first-pass success rates, setting a new standard for safety and efficiency in medical procedures.
