The Preloaded Bougie

A NEXTGEN LEARNING SPACE DEsigned to ELEVATE YOUR AIRWAY PRACTICE
Introduction

In contrast to the standard bougie technique which works best with an assistant, the preloaded bougie is ideal for the single operator. It’s fast, effective and doesn’t require an extra set of hands. Because the bougie is “preloaded” it also makes the movements of intubation more efficient.
