Parker Intubating Stylets
The Parker Flex-It Articulating Stylet can be used for nasal, as well as oral, intubation, and does not require a fixed curvature throughout the intubation. Easy thumb action allows tube curvature to be continuously varied from outside the mouth during the intubation to enable the tube to follow the curvature of the airway. At the end of the intubation, the tube curvature can easily be released, to allow the tube to straighten and slide down the straight trachea, without removing the stylet from the tube until the intubation is complete. The one-handed operation of the Parker stylet is designed to facilitate quick, accurate intubation. It is especially helpful for intubating difficult airways due to exaggerated airway curvatures and very anterior larynges.
Parker Medical malleable metal intubation stylet
Parker Medical now offers three malleable, aluminum intubating stylets. Each stylet is enclosed in a PVC sheath having blunt ends to reduce the risk of trauma if the stylet should extend beyond the tip of the tracheal tube.
The stylets are intended to facilitate quick curving of the tube in preparation for orotracheal intubation.
