Updated: 31/1/2012
 
The bougie is an adjunct for difficult endotracheal intubation.

Indications

For directional control during routine or difficult endotracheal intubation when the laryngeal inlet cannot be completely seen.

Precautions

Excessive force, passage beyond the carina, or blind introduction may result in soft tissue damage or may cause rupture of the bronchus.
The endotracheal tube should not be threaded over the introducer without the laryngoscope in place.
