The New Pocket EXT Tube

The Pocket EXT™ tube is the latest invention by Micro BVM.   The Pocket EXT is an expandable extension tube that ranges between 23 – 75 cm (9-30”).  Unlike any existing accessory in the emergency medicine market, the Pocket EXT tube enables practitioners to transport a patient that has been intubated with unprecedented safety and ease.

The Pocket EXT revolutionizes the way practitioners can ventilate patients.  Today, practitioners must stand above the patient when ventilating with the Bag Valve Mask (BMV).  With the Pocket EXT tube, the practitioner can stand at a slight distance from the patient.  This provides a whole new level of treatment maneuverability. For example, if the patient needs to be moved on a stretcher or between hospital wards, using the Pocket EXT tube, the practitioner can position himself/herself up to 75 cm away and safely continue to ventilate the patient.

The Pocket EXT tube also secures the airway.  Once an airway such as an endotracheal tube (ETT) has been inserted and set, the Pocket EXT tube protects it from unwanted extubation, which may occur if the practitioner is moved or loses his/her balance. Using the Pocket EXT tube, the ETT is secured with a flexible tube that can extend up to 75 cm. This ensures that even if the provider’s hands move, the EET is secure and the ventilation is uninterrupted.  Additionally, the T connector is very lightweight and doesn’t pull on the ETT.
