In an airway rescue situation, where the end-game is to intubate the patient, the Aura-i™ can be used as a conduit for direct endotracheal intubation assisted by the aScope 3 or aScope 3 Slim. The aScope 2 can also be used for the same purpose. The aScope 2 and 3 can be used with ET tubes from size 6.0. The aScope 3 Slim can be used with ET tubes from size 5.0 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. The Aura-i comes in a complete range of 8 sizes, suitable for infants, pediatrics and adults. Note: Aura-i is Rx-Only in the US, and aScope 3 is not for sale in the US -- pending 510K FDA approval.
