Louisville, KY, United States, 2010/05/04 - The Pentax Airway Scope (AWS), a fast and accurate video intubation flexible laryngoscope, is now available from DRE in select regions of the United States.
DRE, Inc., a premier surgical and medical equipment supplier, is now authorized to sell the Pentax Airway Scope (AWS) in limited regions of the United States. The Pentax-AWS is fast, accurate and portable, and incorporates advanced imaging technology with an optimized ergonomic design.
Utilizing high-resolution color images, the Pentax-AWS can help physicians easily identify anatomical structures. When combined with the device’s unique targeting system, fast and accurate placement of the endotracheal tube is achieved while minimizing patient trauma.
Powered by two AA alkaline batteries, the energy-efficient Pentax-AWS permits continuous operation for as long as one hour. It also has a water-resistant, durable construction ideal for ourdoor environments and inclement weather.
The Pentax-AWS provides:
• Safety, speed and accuracy
• Portability — the airway scope can be used continuously for about 1 hour
• Video output capabilities
• Target symbol on the monitor screen.
The Pentax-AWS features the versatile Pblade rigid laryngoscope. The disposable Pblade doesn’t require a stylet — the endotracheal tube guide directs the endotracheal tube into the glottic opening. It incorporates a channel for a suction catheter, permitting aspiration treatment inside the oral cavity. It is also compatible with wide range of endotracheal tube sizes.
In addition to the Pentax-AWS, DRE distributes a variety of new and professionally refurbished medical and surgical equipment, such as the Colin BP-S510 Patient Monitor, DRE Integra AV-S Anesthesia Machine, and DRE Maxx Luxx 3 Surgery Lighting System.
