Nasal Intubation with Bronchoscopy
Our AirSim Advance X manikin can be used to practice nasotracheal intubation & other airway management techniques.
Nasotracheal intubation with a fiberoptic bronchoscope (nasal fiberoptic intubation) can be done when the patient is awake (with topical anesthesia) or under general anesthesia. Extreme care must be taken to guide the bronchoscope between the septum and nasal turbinates to avoid damaging the tissues.
TruCorp bronchoscopy training manikins are ideal for practicing and refining bronchoscopy techniques including endotracheal and nasotracheal intubation.
Emergency Nasal Intubation
EMTs and paramedics can use nasal intubation in emergency airway situations involving facial or oral trauma (where intubation through the mouth is not possible).
TruCorp EMS training manikins are the world’s most realistic airway management trainers providing comprehensive airway management skill training including emergency nasal intubation.
Difficult Nasal Intubation
Small nasal passages or septal deviation can make inserting the nasotracheal tube difficult in some cases.
TruCorp difficult airway trainers have inflatable tongues to simulate edema and interchangeable difficult airways designed and developed to demonstrate clinical variance in airway management training.
Fiberoptic Nasal Intubation
Fiberoptic nasal intubation can be performed in an awake or anesthetized patient. A fiberoptic bronchoscope can be inserted using nasotracheal intubation to define the internal anatomy so a nasotracheal tube can be correctly placed into the trachea.
