In a nutshell:  NICE has published guidance to support the use of a device to help health professionals keep patients’ airways open when unexpected problems occur during procedures. The guidance advises that Ambu aScope2 can help health professionals when there are unexpected difficulties in positioning a temporary tube to keep the airway open, and emergency action is needed to maintain the airway. A thin, single-use, flexible endoscope, Ambu aScope2 uses video camera technology to help health professionals see the windpipe clearly.
