Covidien has announced that it has signed an exclusive agreement with Aircraft Medical to market and distribute the proprietary McGRATH® MAC video laryngoscope in the United States.
The McGRATH® MAC video laryngoscope combines video and direct visualization to support intubations. Its anterior camera is designed to improve viewing to support rapid, seamless tube placement and to reduce “tunnel vision” encountered with conventional direct-view-only laryngoscopes. In everyday practice, the device is designed to reduce the risk of blind, misplaced or delayed intubations, as well as aid in more difficult airway procedures. In addition, its slim-line MacIntosh-style blade provides greater maneuverability in small mouth openings, helping to reduce dental interaction during intubation. Use of the McGRATH® MAC video laryngoscope has demonstrated enhanced visualization, with no requirement for additional training in conventional laryngoscopy technique.
