BD-SL Lighted Stylet
BESDATA BD-SL lighted stylet is composed of a metal handle, a light wand, a rubber tube stopper, and a rechargeable lithium battery. It is used as a guiding stylet in airway intubation. The red light shines with up to 20 000 lux.
You can use the BESDATA lighted stylet during blind intubation since the red light can go through the neck soft tissues, giving you an idea of where to intubate.

Lighted Stylet Clinical Usage in Blind Intubation
Airway management is always challenging during difficult airway intubation. A flexible bronchoscope or a video laryngoscope may not be available in some clinical cases. You need to be prepared for blind intubation.
Furthermore, sometimes, a blind nasal intubation is better than a bronchoscope. For example, if your patient has a thick neck or an unmovable post-surgery airway. This is where our BESDATA lighted stylet comes to the rescue.
