Evaluation of closed-loop system vs standard sampling solutions
In this article, Respiratory consultant, Dr. Suveer Singh, presents the results of his evaluation of Ambu® aScope™ BronchoSampler™. The evaluation was based on procedures performed at Royal Brompton and Chelsea and Westminster hospitals in the UK.
More effective for collecting and protecting samples
The results of the analysis were published on Karger.com. Prof. Pallav L. Shah reviewed the data and co-edited the manuscript. Among other conclusions, Dr. Singh found that aScope BronchoSampler:
- Is quicker, easier and more effective than standard sampling solutions
- Offers a possibly safer technique for diagnostic sampling in the ICU
- May improve safety standards during the coronavirus pandemic
Ambu single-use bronchoscopes can be used for a wide range of procedures, from intubation, secretion management, bedside PDT, BAL & BW through OLV to advanced diagnostic and therapeutic bronchoscopies.
