What are Doctors saying about us?

“The fact that I am using it almost daily, and that I did a lot of intubations with the device, shows the reusable nature of the device.  It can be re-used almost indefinitely!  Only once I felt the need to bend the curvature and after this was used I returned it to the original shape.”

Marcelo Ramos, MD (Brazil)

“I am a solo CRNA in an office plastics practice.  Prior to my obtaining a Clarus Shikani, I always had to practice with the apprehension of inducing a patient that I could not intubate or ventilate.  I have always had a jet-ventilation system and a cricothyrototomy kit on hand.  However, now that I have the SOS, I expect never to use these.”

“Before including your SOS in my practice equipment, I’ve had to cancel surgeries on cosmetic patients because of difficulty in attempting intubation, and wanting to avoid heroic attempts on elective cases.  Since it’s arrival, I’ve had no patient I could not comfortably intubate.”

Joe David Pierce, CRNA

“I love this device and don’t plan to use the regular laryngoscope unless I have no other choice.  I have sold my lighted stylet to a fellow anesthesiologist – there is no need for it considering that I can see where I am going with the Shikani.”

Albert Chuang, MD

“I use the SOS routinely and it works superbly on easy as well as difficult intubations.”

“I was asked to give anesthesia to a gentleman who was previously cancelled due to failed intubation.  The Anesthesiologist’s attempts included laryngoscopy, different blades, LMA intubation and flexible-fiberoptic assisted intubation, all without success.  I intubated the patient maintaining spontaneous respirations, mild IV sedation and local anesthetic topicalization.  The patient was easily intubated, awake, using the Clarus Shikani on the first attempt.”

Gilles Chemtob, MD

“The Shikani Optical Stylet is a wonderful alternative to traditional laryngoscopy.  I have found the SOS useful not only for potentially difficult airways, but also as a less stimulating alternative to traditional laryngoscopy.  I have been able to decrease induction doses resulting in better post-induction hemodynamics.  After only about 20 uses, I can intubate as fast with the SOS as I can with a laryngoscope.”

Stephen Perreault, MD

“The optical stylet manufactured by Clarus replaced direct laryngoscopy as my intubation device of choice.  My modified Levitan stylet is more likely to succeed, less likely to produce trauma, faster to use, and easier to clean than conventional direct laryngoscopy devices.  This single instrument travels with me from hospital to hospital, city to city, and still works after enduring a brutal transport life in my canvas bag.  I don’t leave home without it.”

Samuel Metz, MD

“Every time I have used the Clarus Video System I have been successful.  It is my favorite intubation device for difficult airways.  At times I wonder if I shouldn’t be using it for all my intubations.”

“Optical stylets are a valuable part of the airway armamentarium, which is why I teach the technique to my residents”

Dr. Rosenblatt has received loaned equipment from Clarus Medical, but has no financial relationship with the manufacturer.

William Rosenblatt, MD (Yale University)

“In a situation where all other ’standard’ equipment and ‘tricks’ usually used to emergently gain control of an airway failed, the use of the Clarus Video System allowed us to gain control of this patient’s airway and successfully intubate the patient who was otherwise an exceedingly difficult intubation.”

J. Arthur Saus, MD
