Better for the patient

  • Bevelled tube tip helps reduce the risk of balloon tears and esophageal irritation

  • Heat bonded balloon to tube weld softens rough edges, to help reduce irritation risk

  • PVC tube is formulated to provide the ideal amount of stiffness and pliability

  • Long lead wire keeps the connection to the cable away from the patient’s face

Better for the Clinician

  • Specifically formulated balloon material helps to optimizes acoustic sound transmission

  • Standard male Luer for an easy-fit connection for anesthesiologist’s earpiece tubing

  • Insert-molded, moisture-resistant connector helps to reduce risk of liquid interference

  • Non-slip grip notches on the connector for easy handling

  • Compatible with most patient/temperature monitors

Patient Care in Mind

Starboard’s Esophageal Stethoscope

Competitor’s Esophageal Stethoscope

We use a special heat bonding process to secure our balloons to the PVC tubes. This process results in a smooth bond with no rough edges, making it safer and more comfortable for the patient.

Our competitor uses glue to secure their balloon to their PVC tube, resulting in rough, uneven edges that may cause esophageal trauma during insertion and removal.
