New Glidescope® Lopro Video Laryngoscopes Offer Streamlined Blade Designs, Mac-style Options, and Titanium Construction for Versatility, Durability
April 21, 2014 (Bothell, WA) – Verathon® Inc., a leading manufacturer and marketer of imaging and respiratory medical device solutions, announced the launch of new GlideScope Titanium Reusable video laryngoscopes.
GlideScope Titanium was specifically designed with input from clinicians around the world. The low-profile blade designs improve maneuverability and increase working space in the mouth, supporting quicker intubations in a variety of clinical environments. With the industry’s slimmest blade profiles, clinicians can now manage a wide range of airways, from routine to difficult.
The Titanium product line features two signature blade styles, LoPro and MAC. LoPro 3 and LoPro 4 feature the signature GlideScope blade angle and provide a thinner profile than existing single-use GlideScope products. The LoPro MAC 3 and MAC 4 blades offer a streamlined Macintosh-style design with the added benefits of video laryngoscopy.
Titanium Reusable blades are constructed of titanium, and designed to be stronger and lighter than stainless steel alternatives.
“The new LoPro and MAC options are more than a significant GlideScope breakthrough,” said Dan Estay, President of Verathon. “They are a meaningful improvement in video laryngoscopy and airway management. The Titanium blades are our thinnest designs ever. They are an example of the real-world innovation Verathon is known for, designed to produce reliable outcomes for caregivers and patients.”
GlideScope video laryngoscopes are designed to provide a consistently clear real-time view of the airway and endotracheal tube placement, enabling quick intubation in a wide variety of clinical settings.
