Aircraft Medical Launches the McGRATH® MAC 2 Blade for Paediatric Patients
Date:6/8/2012

EDINBURGH, Scotland, June 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Aircraft Medical ("Aircraft"), the UK medical devices company, today announces the launch of the McGRATH® MAC 2 blade, the first disposable paediatric video laryngoscope designed for both direct and indirect vision. The McGRATH® MAC 2 is compatible with Aircraft's McGRATH® MAC video laryngoscope and has been specifically designed to address the challenges of paediatric intubation in everyday practice.

The McGRATH® Mac 2 blade is designed to provide physicians with a clear view of the vocal cords to help facilitate easier intubation and reduce airway complications. It is also the first disposable, Macintosh profiled video laryngoscope blade for paediatric patients, ensuring it is guaranteed sterile for every patient. 

Commenting on the launch Matt Mcgrath, CEO of Aircraft Medical, said: "We have seen a growing, global demand for paediatric video laryngoscope technology. In the majority of cases small children and infants are intubated using traditional non-video and non-sterile blades, which can make the process challenging in difficult cases, and carry the added risk of blade cross contamination between patients."

The McGrath® Mac 2 will be on display at Aircraft Medical's booth m32 during Euroanaesthesia 2012, The European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA) annual congress in Paris, France from 9-11 June 2012.

About the McGRATH® MAC Video Laryngoscope

The McGRATH® MAC is designed to address increasing clinical demand and make video intubation technology more accessible to doctors world-wide. Adoption of this technology has previously been limited by high prices. The highly portable McGRATH® MAC video laryngoscope combines McGRATH® video technology with a traditionally shaped Macintosh laryngoscope blade, allowing the clinician to visualise the laryngeal inlet directly and indirectly in everyday practice.

The McGRATH® MAC system, including handle and display monitor, meet Aircraft's HLDi standard. Introduced in 2008, Aircraft's HLDi standard meets, and exceeds, the strictest infection control requirements, which include the recent advancements in vaporized hydrogen peroxide sterilisation systems.
