How Is Vie Scope® Used for Intubation by ENT Surgeons?
Vie Scope® by Adroit Surgical is a device used for inserting a tracheal introducer into a patient’s trachea. This narrow device can easily pass through the tongue, maxilla, and mandible while still providing the surgeon with a clear view of the vocal cords for easy intubation. The Vie Scope® is inserted first into the trachea just below the epiglottis. Then the surgeon passes a bougie into the trachea via the direct line of vision provided by the Vie Scope®. Then, the scope is removed and an endotracheal tube connected to a ventilation machine is passed into the trachea.
