How to bring light into the airway
People who have been infected with COVID-19 may have to undergo a thorough respiratory assessment in order to assess the infection.
These are often done using endoscopic systems, which require a maximum of light to enable reliable diagnoses and therapies. However, physicians must be able to trust the colors they see to evaluate the infection.
Glass optical fibers transport light with virtually no color changes, enabling doctors to see true-to-life colors.
Where can this be used?
• Bronchoscopes to assess infections and clean airways
• Laryngoscopes to examine the larynx and to help intubate
Viewing the entire respiratory system down to the smallest bronchioles helps in the fight against COVID-19.
