Tracheal Tube Introducers
Definition : Instruments designed for use in the introduction of tracheal tubes through the mouth (i.e., orotracheal intubation). These instruments usually are very flexible stylet-like devices that are directly introduced in the trachea as a guide for the passage of an endotracheal tube. Tracheal tube introducers (e.g., Eschmann introducers) are intended for use in emergency situations to facilitate difficult intubations, especially in the field or when other resources are not available.
