Comparing single-use bronchoscopes

See how EXALT™ Model B single-use bronchoscope performs in a head-to-head comparison with other scopes.

Model B delivers superior suction across all scope sizes¹—outperforming tested disposable bronchoscopes and making it ideal for a range of critical care endoscopic procedures. Clinicians prefer Model B’s ease of navigation² while leveraging best-in-class visualization and next-level ergonomics.

1 Data on file – Boston Scientific benchtop study testing 15 units each of 9 single-use scope models, and 1 each of 4 reusable scope models (each tested 15 times with a new suction valve) under constant pressure for 30 seconds testing two different viscosity substances. The volume of substance suctioned via the bronchoscope was the primary outcome. One-way ANOVA was used to test statistical significance between scopes with an alpha of 0.05. Bench test results may not necessarily be indicative of clinical performance.

2 In simulated use evaluations, 15 physicians evaluated EXALT Model B and rated navigation as “clinically preferred” over other commercially available single-use bronchoscopes.
