Verathon Introduces Glidescope® Core™ 15, Extending Leadership in Airway Visualization

January 16, 2020 (Bothell, WA) — The view is about to improve in ICUs, ORs, Emergency Departments and bronchoscopy suites everywhere as Verathon debuts the GlideScope Core 15 airway visualization system.

The GlideScope Core 15 delivers enhanced visibility for users, beginning with a new 15-inch, high-definition touchscreen monitor. In addition, its Dual View capability presents multimodal images side-by-side, enabling views of the airway via a GlideScope video laryngoscope and a BFlex single-use bronchoscope simultaneously. In the ICU, bedside bronchoscopy just got easier with a larger monitor for team-based care and the GlideScope MagnaView™ feature to enlarge the bronchoscopy image by approximately 50%.

According to Tim Shauf, Vice President & General Manager of Respiratory and Surgical Solutions, “The GlideScope Core 15 is an all-in-one visualization system designed around a 15” high-definition monitor with optimized capabilities. Dual View side-by-side imaging is highly beneficial when securing difficult airways, and GlideScope MagnaView™ lets the user expand the image to optimize team-based care during bronchoscopy procedures.”

The GlideScope Core 15 system includes a comprehensive workstation designed for improved workflow for airway management and bronchoscopy procedures. The GlideScope Core 15 offers the ease-of-use one expects from a GlideScope system, with tools organized to be close at hand and an adjustable arm for elevated visibility and optimal workflow. “Verathon designs everything with the user’s experience in mind,” says Earl Thompson, President. “We recognize the need for workspaces to be arranged for efficiency, and the GlideScope Core 15 has been engineered to work seamlessly in any area — ICUs, ORs, EDs, and more. We have created a system that supports our mission to empower health care providers to improve and extend patients’ lives.”

The GlideScope Core 15 airway management system is now available in the US market. To learn more about the entire GlideScope portfolio of airway management products, visit
