Verathon Launches GlideScope Spectrum QC Single-use Video Laryngoscopes
Spectrum QC Delivers Simpler, More Secure Connections with Enhanced Image Quality, Empowering Clinicians with Confidence and Speed During Airway Management
April 18, 2023 (Bothell, WA) — Verathon®, a global leader in airway management solutions, announces the launch of the GlideScope® Spectrum™ QC with QuickConnect™ technology. This new, extensive portfolio of single-use video laryngoscopes features a unique, magnetic connector coupled with image quality enhancements to support fast, effective airway management.
The integration of QuickConnect technology with the market leading GlideScope Spectrum video laryngoscopes further optimizes prep time for intubation procedures, especially important in emergent and difficult airway management situations. QuickConnect ensures the clinician can focus on the patient while utilizing the AlwaysConnect™ experience.
The new Spectrum QC also provides clinicians over 50% sharper and more vivid image quality in addition to a greater field of view compared to previous generation Spectrum video laryngoscopes1.
“As a market leader in airway management, we are relentless in our passion and drive to continuously provide new solutions that allow healthcare professionals to improve patient care and safety” said Reza Yazdi, the Senior Director of Visualization R&D. “With Spectrum QC, Verathon continues to deliver valuable innovation rooted in feedback and input from clinical customers that use our solutions every day. With nine blades of multiple sizes and types, Spectrum QC helps clinicians care for a broad range of patients.”
The new Spectrum QC operates seamlessly with Verathon’s GlideScope Core™ visualization system, the most comprehensive and flexible airway visualization system for video laryngoscopy, bronchoscopy, and dual-view airway procedures. With Dual View you can see more with simultaneous GlideScope video laryngoscope and BFlex™ bronchoscope views to help navigate and secure difficult airways.
“You’ve got what you need right there,” explains Anesthesiologist Dr. Gregory Schears “In a moment’s notice, you can transition from a video laryngoscope to a bronchoscope, or both simultaneously, without a problem. I can very quickly choose the option I need and see things like I’ve never been able to see before. Having an integrated system like this is a huge advantage from both a time and safety standpoint2.”
