The Portex® intubation stylets have a “walking stick design” and can be inserted into the ET Tube prior to intubation.
It is made of malleable aluminium with a polyethylene outer sleeve that allows the stylet to be adapted to any desired shape.
Although very different in shape and use, some clinicians believe that it can be used as a Guide until they try to use it. The “hook” makes this impossible to do so and is not a practice we endorse.
• Single use so reduces the risk of cross-infection
• Choice of two lengths for adult intubation
• Choice of three sizes to fit most adult and paediatric tracheal tubes
