Thanks to a distribution agreement with Covidien, Aircraft Medical will be making its McGRATH MAC video laryngoscope available to clinicians in much of the world. Announced a year ago, this is a budget video laryngoscope intended for potentially difficult intubations. As the video below demonstrates, it’s a straightforward tool that’s used pretty much like a regular laryngoscope.
A more robust model from AirMedical, the McGRATH Series 5, features a couple extra features, such as variable blade length that can be adjusted to the patient anatomy.
The McGRATH® MAC can be used as a direct or indirect view laryngoscope.
It utilizes all new single-use McGRATH® MAC blades made from robust optical polymer.
It’s supported by an internal reinforced alloy chassis and CameraStick™ which delivers ‘steel-like’ rigidity.
Its super-slim blade profile brings improved patient access and limits dental contact.
Its unique, minute-by-minute countdown battery technology can last for weeks.
