Verathon Inc. Introduces Single-Use Video Laryngoscope

June 11, 2007 - Verathon Inc. recently introduced the GlideScope Cobalt, a single-use video laryngoscope that provides a clear, real-time view of the patient's airway, enabling quick intubation.

Optimized for demanding operating room (OR), emergency department (ED) and intensive care unit (ICU) applications, the GlideScope Cobalt single use design, which eliminates the need for disinfecting the "blade," is ideal for fast-paced intubation settings.

GlideScope video laryngoscopes (GVL) provide a real-time view of the airway and of endotracheal tube placement, minimizing the need for a "blind" intubation procedure. The GlideScope Cobalt design is based off the popular GlideScope reusable video laryngoscope that achieves a Cormack-Lehane Grade I or Grade II view 99 percent of the time.

GlideScope Cobalt consists of: a slim video baton which houses a high-resolution camera with a patented anti-fogging mechanism to resist lens contamination; a non-glare color monitor; and single-use, sterile GVL Stats in large and small sizes that offer a patented 60-degree blade angulation. GlideRite tracheal tubes and a 90 degree rigid stylet, both used to facilitate intubation, are provided, along with a protective cradle for the video baton. An instructional manual as well as setup and use quick reference cards are also included.
