Steerable Tracheal Intubation Guide (S.T.I.G.)
Standard introducers are invaluable instruments, especially when facing difficult to manage airways, but sometimes they are just not enough. The ability to steer the tip of the introducer is a game-changer, making navigating the airway so much easier.
Whether you use DL or VL, the S.T.I.G. will help you find the way. Simply use your thumb to move integrated tab slider up and down to flex or retro-flex the tip of this innovative new introducer from Construct Medical.
Flexible, steerable tip makes it easier to navigate difficult airways
Tabs are easy to grip and manoeuvre even with gloves
Slider tabs situated so they will not need to pass through vocal cords
Blunt silicone tip reduces the risk of tracheal trauma
Bright phosphorous coating on tip makes it highly visible, especially with the ultra-violet lights used in some laryngoscopes
Introduce with anterior flexion, straighten to advance the tube or retro-flex if needed
Size 15Ch x 65cm with graduation marks from 10 to 50cm
Improves intubation, saving time, leading to fewer complication
