Atraumatic EMG Tube
Cobra 3P EMG Endotracheal Tube—the newest laryngeal electrode by Neurovision Medical Products. Newly redesigned, EMG tube with enhanced atraumatic electrodes, setting the standard for superior RLN monitoring.
The innovative EMG tube design elongated the conductive silver ink recording plates, creating the largest target area for precise contact with the vocal cords. Reliable EMG electrodes are enhanced to ensure delivery of EMG signals for accurate monitoring.
With a zero-profile*, the atraumatic electrodes prioritize patient comfort and safety. The EMG electrodes do not increase endotracheal tube (ETT) size, are gentle on the airway, to allow for IONM surgical solution that ease the procedure.
Neurovision Medical Products, patented EMG electrodes has been extensively validated for its safety and effectiveness. Cobra 3P enables prolonged, continuous neuromonitoring during surgical procedures.2
Cobra 3P innovative design is compatible with BOTH single-channel and multi-channel nerve monitoring systems.
Increased EMG electrode size improves contact with the vocal cords, even in longer airways or larger patients.
High-quality EMG electrode for reliable RLN monitoring features 1.5 mm touch-proof connectors with color-coded wires that identify the lateral and posterior plates.
Secure EMG Design
Additional features of the C3P EMG Tube enhance the intraoperative neuromonitoring performance.
A high volume, low-pressure cuff, improves the air seal on the trachea.
The EMG electrodes and wire integration are hermetically sealed to prevent fluids from disrupting the EMG signal and reduce unwanted functional issues. All lead wires use a standard DIN (42802) plug for an easy and secure connection to any nerve monitoring system.
The innovative NEW design with patented technology creates a truly universal intraoperative neuromonitoring EMG tube with an enhanced IONM performance overall.
