The patented Parker Flex-Tip Tracheal Tube has a soft, flexible, curved, centered, distal tip that is designed to prevent trauma to the delicate structures of the human airway. This tip, which is flanked by double Murphy eyes, flexes and yields as it is advanced into contact with protruding features of airway anatomy. The centered tip tends to move along the midline of the airway and the glottic opening. The tip’s curvature predisposes it to “ski” gently along airway surfaces.
Several clinical studies have confirmed the superiority of the Parker Flex-Tip Tracheal Tube for use over introducers and for fiberoptic intubations. The centered, curved tube tip lies closely against the wall of the fiberscope or introducer and minimizes any gap between them which could contribute to the tube hang-ups in the larynx which frequently occur when using a tube with a standard, side-beveled tip.
The Parker Flex-It Directional Stylet can be used for oral and nasal intubation and requires no pre-bending.
Easy thumb action allows tube curvature to be continuously adjusted during an intubation.
Its one-handed operation is designed to facilitate quick, accurate intubation, and it is especially helpful for intubating the most difficult airways.
