Ambu® aScope™ 3 Regular 5.0/2.2

Challenging conventions

Insufficient availability of equipment for management of the difficult airway in the OR, ER and ICU was considered among the major causative factors contributing to poor patient outcomes in the NAPL4 Audit1 conducted in the UK. In the ICU, prompt access to a flexible optical scope for airway management was a recurrent problem. 

Intubation and bronchoscopy made easy - in the OR, ER and ICU aScope™ 3 is a flexible single-use videoscope that once and for all solves the problem of accessibility, simplifies set-up procedures and eliminates the need for complex cleaning procedures, thus releasing valuable resources for other procedures. 

With a channel width of up to 2.2 mm, aScope™ 3 is the ideal alternative to reusable scopes. It is suitable for a wide range of endoscopic procedures: from intubation and training of intubation skills in the OR and ER to bedside BAL & PDT procedures in the ICU.

When connected to the portable monitor Ambu® aView'"​, a high-resolution image enables easy navigation and fast identification of anatomical landmarks. 

Enabling you to provide the best care

By switching to the single-use aScope™ 3, you enhance patient safety by ensuring immediate access to a flexible videoscope and increasing opportunities for training of flexible optical intubation and bronchoscopy. 

aScope 3 is suitable for

  • check Intubation
  • check Airway inspection
  • check Tube check
  • check Management of retained secretion
  • check BAL and BW procedures
  • check PDT procedures
  • check Training of bronchoscopy skills

Better Patient Safety

Eliminating the risk of cross-contamination.

Choosing aScope™ 3 is about enhancing patient safety and increasing productivity: It is about ensuring immediate access to a flexible videoscope, eliminating the risk of cross-contamination and increasing the opportunities for training of flexible optical intubation and bronchoscopy.
