Ambu today announced that it was awarded a contract for video laryngoscopes with Vizient.
The contract covers Ballerup, Denmark-based Ambu’s King Vision video laryngoscope system for quick and easy intubation with a display for a real-time view of a patient’s airway. The contract also includes Ambu’s next-generation video laryngoscope that is slated to launch in 2022.
Through the agreement with Vizient, a video laryngoscope category was created for the Vizient membership, effective at the start of 2022. It will give members pre-negotiated pricing and terms for Ambu’s full suite of video laryngoscopy products.
Vizient is a healthcare performance improvement company that serves 97% of the U.S.’s academic medical centers, so the deal will allow Ambu to boost its market share in the hospital market.
“We are excited to work closely with Vizient, an exceptional company, and have the opportunity to serve a vast market of health systems, hospitals, and healthcare providers across the U.S.,” Ambu CEO Juan Jose Gonzalez said in a news release. “Vizient’s members will now have access to contracts that offer increased savings for Ambu’s airway management platform, including the aScope 4 Broncho, the VivaSight video bronchial tubes for one lung ventilation procedures, and the King Vision aBlade video laryngoscope.”
