Endotracheal Tube Parker Flex it Stylet R

There are many types of medical equipment available to help patients who need assistance with their breathing. One such type of equipment is an endotracheal tube, which is a tube that goes down the patient's throat in order to help them breathe. In this article, we'll be taking a closer look at Parker Flex it stylets, which are a type of endotracheal tube.

What is an endotracheal tube?

An endotracheal tube is a medical device that is inserted into the trachea (windpipe) to maintain an open airway. It is commonly used in patients who are unable to breathe on their own or who need assistance with ventilation. The endotracheal tube is connected to a ventilator, which provides the necessary air pressure to keep the patient breathing.

There are several different types of endotracheal tubes, and the one that is best for a particular patient depends on the individual's needs. One type of endotracheal tube is the Parker Flex it Stylet. This type of tube is designed to be flexible and easy to insert, making it ideal for patients who have difficulty tolerating rigid tubes. The Parker Flex it Stylet also has a built-in stylet that helps guide the tube into the correct position. Once in place, the stylet can be removed, leaving the tube in place. This type of tube is often used for short-term ventilation or for patients who are at risk for dislodging their tubes.

The different types of endotracheal tubes

There are many different types of endotracheal tubes available on the market. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages. Here is a brief overview of some of the most popular types of endotracheal tubes:

1. Parker Flex it Stylet: This type of endotracheal tube is made from a flexible material that allows it to be easily inserted into the trachea. The stylet also helps to keep the tube in place once it is inserted.

2. Rigid endotracheal tube: This type of endotracheal tube is made from a rigid material that makes it more difficult to insert into the trachea. However, this type of tube is less likely to move around once it is in place.

3. Cuffed endotracheal tube: This type of endotracheal tube has a cuff that inflated once the tube is inserted. This helps to keep the tube in place and prevents air from leaking around it.

4. Uncuffed endotracheal tube: This type of endotracheal tube does not have a cuff. It is easier to insert into the trachea but may not stay in place as well as a c

The unique design is for quick, accurate, and gentle intubation. Parker Flex-it Stylet-R Objectives: To evaluate Parker Flex-It stylet as an alternative to GlideRite Rigid stylet to aid tracheal intubation with the Glidescope. Methods: This prospective randomized trial was conducted at King Abdulaziz University Hospital, College of Medicine, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia between May and December 2014. Sixty American Society of Anesthesiologists I-II patients was randomly assigned to one of 2 equal groups receiving intubation by Glidescope using either GlideRite Rigid stylet (Group GS) or Parker Flex-It stylet (Group PS). The total intubation time, ease of intubation, incidences of successful intubation at the first attempt, number of intubation attempts, use of optimization maneuvers, and possible complications were recorded. Results: No significant differences between both groups regarding the total intubation time (p=0.08) were observed. Intubation was significantly easier in group PS compared with group GS as measured by visual analog scale (p=0.001) with no significant differences between the groups regarding the rate of successful tracheal intubation from the first attempt (p=0.524). However, the number of attempts at intubation and usage of external laryngeal manipulation was similar in both groups (p greater than 0.05). The incidence of sore throat, dysphagia, hoarseness, and trauma were significantly higher in group GS (p less than 0.05). Conclusion: Parker Flex-It stylet is as effective as GlideRite Rigid stylet when used by experienced operators in patients with normal airways using Glidescope; however, it is easier and less traumatic. ACCORDING to the American Society of Anesthesiologists, a leading cause of anesthesia-related injury is the inability to intubate the trachea and secure the airway.1–3 In 85% of these cases, the outcome is either death or brain damage.1 In patients who undergo difficult intubation, the morbid nonfatal events are also increased.4,5 The reported incidence of difficult intubation is 1.15– 3.8% in the general population, while failed intubation is rarer (0.13–0.3%).2,6 Worldwide, up to 600 patients are estimated to die annually as a result of the complications that occur during tracheal intubation.7 These facts have led to the development of several alternative techniques, such as intubation through the intubating laryngeal mask airway, use of different laryngoscope blades, gum-elastic bougies or stylets, retrograde intubation, blind oral or nasal intubation, a variety of rigid fibreoptic techniques, and flexible fibreoptic intubation.8 However, many of these techniques have important disadvantages such as complexity, Parker Flex-it Stylet-R low reliability, high cost and limited availability. Moreover, some of them are blind techniques, as they do not provide visualization of the endotracheal tube (ETT) as it passes through the glottis
