The challenge of a flexible laryngeal mask is the combination of needs:The ease of insertion and security of the airway needed by the anesthesiologist, the flexibility and room to work needed by the surgeon and the need to protect the patient from residual proteins. Ambu® AuraFlex™ combines these needs in an innovative, single-use solution.
Ambu® AuraFlex™ is so flexible that it can easily be taped well away from the surgical field, improving surgical access without any loss of seal. The flexible tube is also reinforced with kink-free wire, which eliminates the risk of airway tube occlusion.
Furthermore, the integration of pilot tube in the airway tube makes handling and insertion easy and dramatically reduces the risk of cutting the pilot tube during surgery.
Also, Ambu® AuraFlex™ includes some of the same well-known features as the rest of the Aura family, such as the reinforced tip for fast and accurate positioning, extra soft, thin cuff with easy glide surface for a quick and smooth insertion and teeth marks for a visual check of the mask position.
And finally, the single-use concept eliminates the risk of cross-contamination and at the same time eliminates all costs and hassle of cleaning and sterilization.
AuraFlex - the new standard in disposable flexible laryngeal masks.
