Has anyone ever heard of a bite guard that instead of being a full circle (ring doughnut) shape is a partial circle (like a "c") shape?
So that the probe can be inserted manually with the fingers as a guide and then protected with a guard, without the need to extract the probe to fit the guard.

Can you not just cut a bit out of a full circle one?
It took us a long time to get the doctors to use the bite guard at one place I worked but the managers soon stepped in when they kept on getting 40k bills for new TOE probes.
I once saw what looked like teeth marks on a scope for looking up the other end. Had they just used the wrong scope as the correct one was not to hand or just pushed it too far in? laugh

Cheers,
Prehaps if a clinician gets bitten we may see the other side of the story. Reason for cancelled op being no fingers instead of no kit!

Jim, I seem to remember 72 Triumph Spitfire had the most amazing set up. With it raised of the ground the black circles not only went in at a significant camber but also toed in a fair bit to terrible pressure on the bottom trunion joints. Maybe thats why so manny ended up in hedges, or was that pilot error???

I wonder what web sites I will get if I search on "Toe bite guard". Some very specialist ones I expect.
And for our American cousins who do not use diphthongs TOE is the correct spelling of TEE.

My spelling is not bad. I am typing this on a Medigenic keyboard and I blame that for all my typos.
