Stylets, Tracheal Tube

Definition : Stylets designed for use in the lumen of endotracheal tubes during intubation procedures, especially to facilitate the passage of the tracheal tube though the upper airway and vocal cords. These stylets usually are wires or thin flexible metal rods that are inserted into the tracheal tube prior to intubation. Tracheal tube stylets are designed to be slightly shorter than the tracheal tube to avoid damage to the airways during passage; they are usually withdrawn after intubation has been successfully completed. Some dedicated tracheal stylets are for specific laryngoscopes used in intubation.
