We’re revolutionizing the placement of endotracheal tubes.
There are 23M+ intubations performed in the US each year.
In emergency situations requiring unplanned intubations, the failure rate is as high as 20-40%, resulting in 2M+ intubation failures every year. Failed intubation is the most common preventable cause of trauma-related deaths. Until now.
Brio engineered technology to help safely and efficiently reach the trachea, eliminating the common practice of removing the tube and stylet, manually reforming the stylet shape, and reinserting—steps which cause increased swelling, procedure time and tissue damage for the patient. Brio is introducing a series of intubating stylets to improve intubation success rates for both planned (surgical) and unplanned (emergency) intubations. Brio’s INT Navigator™ is engineered to allow the clinician to steer the tube actively through the airway of the patient. This real-time articulation can increase first-pass success, helping to minimize the time the patient is without oxygen and minimize damage caused by multiple intubation attempts.
As a clinician, think of those times when you can see the vocal cords, the tube is at the wrong angle to pass through them, and you wish you could change the angle right then without having to reform and start again. Now you can! Meet Brio’s INT Navigator™, a steerable insertion guide.
The INT Navigator™ is engineered to assist users in maneuvering the endotracheal tube through the mouth, throat and airway during intubation. A thumb-controlled lever on the INT Navigator’s handle directs motion of its tip, driving the endotracheal tube into the trachea. The full steerability enables one-handed intubation with the clinician’s choice of visualization strategy. The result: improved first attempt intubation success and reduced or eliminated unnecessary deaths associated with failed intubation.
