ETView (Misgav, Israel) is readying the U.S. launch of its single-use VivaSight-DL airway management system, following the recent 510(k) clearance of the product by the FDA.
The single-use device features a dual-lumen airway ventilation tube with an integrated continuous high-resolution video airway imaging system, which allows airway control and lung isolation during thoracic, cardiac, vascular or esophageal surgeries.
The VivaSight line also includes the VivaSight-SL (formerly known as “TVT”), which is a single-use, single-lumen endotracheal tube equipped with an embedded camera that is available in Europe, Israel, and the United States. A prospective study published in 2010 found that the device “facilitated surveillance of tube position by providing a clear high-quality view of the carina, throughout [percutaneous nephrolithotomy] with several changes of patient position.”
