NIM EMG endotracheal tube
Even experienced surgeons find it difficult to visually identify the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) or vagus nerve during thyroid surgery and other neck dissections. Studies show that the rate of RLN injury is under-estimated1-6and intraoperative nerve monitoring of the RLN is recommended as a risk-minimizing tool.
NIM® EMG Tubes provide an open airway for patient ventilation and intraoperative nerve monitoring of both vocal cords. If nerve function changes, the NIM System alerts you with visual and audible warnings to help reduce the risk of patient injury.
