EMG Tube, Reliable RLN Neuromonitoring
Enhanced Design, Superior IONM Performance,
Cobra EMG endotracheal tube, 3-plate design empowers surgical decision-making with unmatched intraoperative neuromonitoring of the recurrent laryngeal nerve during Thyroid surgery and other ENT procedures.
Cobra EMG tube features three elongated EMG electrodes for superior vocal cord contact that is atraumatic. Delivering reliable neuromonitoring EMG signals of RLN activity, while minimizing airway trauma.1
Neurovision Medical Products redesign is the only “universal” EMG tube on the market! C3P is compatible with any nerve monitoring system, for easy integration with existing equipment, for the most reliable IONM neuromonitoring performance.
Experience the Cobra 3-Plate EMG tube and experience neuromonitoring precision like never before.

Atraumatic EMG Tube
Cobra 3P EMG Endotracheal Tube—the newest laryngeal electrode by Neurovision Medical Products. Newly redesigned, EMG tube features key enhancements the to the electrode to deliver the most reliable EMG signals for superior neuromonitoring.
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.
The EMG tube redesign elongated the conductive silver ink recording plates. The modification creates the largest target area for contact with the vocal cords. Tube placement is easier and delivers more reliable EMG signals during the procedures.
High-quality EMG electrode for reliable neuromonitoring features 1.5 mm touch-proof DIN 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.
