Anaesthesia/Critical Care

  • Parker Flex-It® Directional Stylet

    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.

  • Parker Flex-Tip® Endotracheal Tube

    The patented Parker Flex-Tip Tracheal Tube has a soft, flexible, curved, centred, 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 centred 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.

    The centred, curved tube tip lies closely against the wall of the fiberscope or introducer and minimises 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-bevelled tip.

  • Vital Signs enFlow® IV Fluid/Blood Warming System

    The enFlow IV Fluid Warming System is a high performance system for the delivery of fluids or blood at a continuous 40°C from KVO to 200mL/minute. The warmer unit fits in the palm of your hand and is placed close to the patient allowing a very short distance (9 inches recommended) from the end of the warmer to the patient’s IV site. This helps prevent loss of heat while the IV fluid travels to the patient’s IV site. Competitive warmers heat the fluids at the IV pole and then travel approximately 6 feet to the patient’s IV site.

    • Heats to 40°C in as little as 4 seconds
    • Temperature displayed = temperature delivered; minimal heat loss due to short distance from warmer to patient
    • Warmer unit fits into the palm of your hand, controller unit mounts on an IV pole
    • Range of flows from KVO to 200mL/min
