The Ranger provides a clear picture of the larynx and vocal cords on a display monitor, enabling visual control of the endotracheal tube in its trajectory toward the airway. Like other GlideScope(R) instruments, the Ranger does not require "line of sight" for view and takes less force than traditional methods, helping eliminate trauma to patients.(iv) It facilitates fast, accurate ETT placement in difficult and routine airways, and helps prevent improper ETT placement and related complications in emergency, out-of-hospital situations.
The GlideScope(R) Ranger, operational in seconds, is compact for easy carrying and storage, measuring only 7 1/4 x 6 3/8 inches and weighing less than two pounds. With its rugged, high-impact construction, the Ranger was designed to be dependable in an array of field conditions, including temperatures of -4 degrees to +122 degrees F, humidity up to 100 percent, and altitude up to 20,000 feet. The integrated, rechargeable lithium polymer battery provides a minimum 90-minute continuous-use autonomy and allows for approximately 20 intubations per battery cycle (depending on usage).
GlideRite(TM) tracheal tubes and a 90 degree rigid stylet, both used to
facilitate intubation, are also provided. The importance of the
GlideScope(R) rigid stylet cannot
