Intubating – Color-coded packaging with directions for use, MRI safe and compatible
Ambu Aura-i is an excellent alternative to a face mask for achieving and maintaining control of the airway during routine and emergency anaesthetic procedures in patients evaluated as eligible for a supraglottic airway, or in situations where other attempts to establish an airway have failed.
Ambu® Aura-i™ is a disposable laryngeal mask designed for everyday use. Pre-formed to follow the anatomy of the human airway, the soft rounded curve of the Aura-i ensures fast and easy placement and guarantees long-term performance. Aura-i is the preferred everyday routine device for establishing an airway where an ET-tube is deemed unnecessary.
At the same time it holds a place on the difficult airway cart. In case of a “Cannot Intubate – Cannot mask Ventilate” (CI-CV) situa tion, where the end-game is to intubate the patient, Aura-i can be used as conduit for direct endotracheal intubation assisted by a flexible scope (such as the Ambu® aScope™ 2).
The airway tube is designed to allow easy passage of an appropriately sized ET-tube. The recommended ET-tube size is indicated on the connector block of the mask. Aura-i comes in a complete range of 8 sizes, suitable for infants, pediatrics and adults.
