PENTAX-AWS is fast, accurate and portable, and incorporates advanced
imaging technology with optimized ergonomic design. Utilising a
2.4” high-resolution color LCD video monitor, identification
of anatomical structures can be easily obtained. When combined with the
unique targeting system, fast and accurate placement of the
endotracheal (ET) tube is achieved during tracheal intubation.
intubation using a laryngoscope is a commonly practiced technique today
to secure the respiratory passage in instances where the trachea is
blocked or constricted during cardiopulmonary arrest or in surgical
operations where the patient is given general anesthesia.
