The Dual Articulating Headrest enables more versatile patient positioning for the anesthesia care team. Tilt & height capability of the headrest facilitates improved patient airway management/tracheal intubation and simplifies lateral patient positioning.
How the Dual Articulating Headrest Works
With the ability to easily tilt and raise/lower the patient’s head, the Dual Articulating Headrest provides the anesthesia provider with the clinical access they need to intubate the patient. Also ideal for lateral patient positioning during surgery, the Dual Articulating Headrest can raise to accommodate and support the patient’s head in lateral position, eliminating the need for additional positioning devices.
Why the Dual Articulating Headrest?
Adjusting the patient’s head position is important for anesthesia providers and OR caregivers during a surgical procedure. Anesthesia providers are tasked with intubating patients in induction phase of most surgeries. Positioning the patient’s head as needed for the procedure is critical in creating a clinically appropriate view for performing successful laryngoscopies and tracheal intubations.
