What is a Bougie for Intubation?

Product Category:

A Bougie for Intubation is a medical device used during endotracheal intubation. It is a flexible, slender instrument intended to assist in the placement of an endotracheal tube into the trachea. The bougie is inserted into the trachea first, and then the endotracheal tube is guided over it into the desired position.

This blind intubation technique using an intubation aid is particularly useful for difficult intubation or when visualizing the glottis is challenging. It is an essential tool for healthcare professionals working in airway management and emergency medicine.

The endotracheal bougie is available in solid or hollow variations with straight, curved or vented tips, offering options for different intubation techniques. They are available in different sizes, including 6 Fr, 10 Fr, and 15 Fr. The selection of the bougie type, tip design, and size is dependent on the specific intubation requirements.

Bougies for Intubation are manufactured by AdvaCare Pharma in facilities located in China, India, and the USA. These factories strictly adhere to the rigorous regulations required for CE/ISO certification, ensuring the highest quality, safety, and efficiency of our medical products.

Product Specifications




Solid bougie is made of a rigid, non-flexible material and is primarily used for difficult intubations. Its rigid construction allows for precise maneuvering and control during the intubation process.

The solid bougie is inserted into the trachea through the vocal cords and then the endotracheal tube is passed over the bougie and into the trachea.


Hollow bougie has a small lumen or opening in the center and is most commonly used for routine intubations. The hollow bougie may be useful for guiding the ET tube around anatomical obstructions or for allowing ventilation during the intubation process. Its flexibility allows for easier maneuverability, which can assist in achieving successful intubation.

What is a Bougie for Intubation used for?

It's used during intubation procedures to assist with the placement of an endotracheal tube or tracheostomy tube.

How is a Bougie for Intubation used?

During intubation, the bougie should be inserted into the trachea under direct visualization or with the assistance of a laryngoscope. The healthcare professionals can then guide the placement of the endotracheal or tracheostomy tube into position. Once the tube is positioned properly, the bougie can be removed.

Are there any special storage instructions for Bougies for Intubation?

The intubation aid should be kept in a location that is not exposed to extreme temperatures, such as excessive heat or cold. Extreme temperatures can affect the material and structural integrity of the item.


What is the difference between a solid and a hollow bougie?

The solid bougie is commonly used as a guide for navigating the endotracheal tube, while a hollow bougie offers the additional capability of oxygenation or ventilation.

Which type of tip should be used?

Straight-tip bougies are generally used for a direct approach, while curved-tip bougies allow for easier maneuvering around anatomical structures. A vented bougie allows for the passage of oxygen or the release of air during the intubation process, aiding in oxygenation and ventilation if required.

What size Bougie for Intubation is recommended?

The choice of bougie size depends on the specific patient's anatomy, the anticipated difficulty of intubation, and the clinician's experience and comfort level. A 6 Fr bougie is commonly used in pediatric patients or patients with smaller airways. A 10 Fr Bougie is frequently used in adult patients with average-sized airways, while the 15 Fr may be more suitable for adult patients with larger airways or situations increased stiffness or stability during intubation is necessary.
