|A single patient use one-piece
laryngoscope incorporating handle and blade.
- The potential for cross infection by attaching clean blades
to contaminated handles is eliminated.
- The risks of laryngoscope malfunction due to brand and
system incompatibility, and poor coupling between handle
and blade are removed.
|Mandatory repeated high temperature sterilisation
processes on reusable laryngoscopes have led to reduced reliability
and early failure of the illumination system.
- Each new device will have a bright new reliable light
to display the larynx to facilitate accurate placement of
the endotracheal tube.
|Once the laryngoscope light is switched on by
removing the ‘tab’, the light cannot be switched
- This feature reinforces the single-use design to prevent
|The innovative new handle design is shorter, slimmer,
and incorporates a proximal hook.
- The unique design of the handle improves the ergonomics
of the laryngoscopy process. The hook at the end of the
handle allows the user to lift the lower jaw with more balance
in the load, and minimises the tendency to lever on, and
damage the upper front teeth as may occur with the standard
|Moulded out of medical grade ABS plastic.
- The strong light-weight construction with the shorter
handle creates a more delicate and less cumbersome instrument
which is easy to use on all body shapes, and gentler on
|By changing to a totally disposable system, cost
savings will be achieved by reduced inventory costs of multiple
handles and blades, and bulbs and light guides.
- Replacement, maintenance and resterilisation costs will
- The unsavoury use of contaminated laryngoscopes will
be avoided, and the laryngoscope will be eliminated as a
vector for cross infection – a potential cost saving
that is immeasurable.
