Date:7/30/2012

BOTHELL, Wash., July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Verathon® Inc. announced today the release of Pediatric Airway Rounds: An Educational Video Series with Cheryl K. Gooden, MD. The new Pediatric Airway Rounds DVD offers hands-on techniques, case studies, and other valuable information that promotes best practices in pediatric airway management.

A pediatric anesthesiologist and associate professor at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, Dr. Gooden discusses:

  • Developmental differences between infant, small child and adult airway anatomy
  • Difficult pediatric airway management strategies
  • Hands-on tips for intubating pediatric patients using the GlideScope® video laryngoscope
  • Six case studies, featuring patients from two months to seven years old with normal and difficult airways

As a distinguished educator and clinician, Dr. Gooden understands the need for hands-on educational tools to promote best practices for pediatric anomalies. "The pediatric anatomy does differ from that of an adult," explains Dr. Gooden. "Therefore, the approach to airway management of infants and children is influenced by developmental differences in head and neck anatomy, no matter the device used to manage the airway."

"Clinicians haven't always had the right tools for the smallest airways," says Dr. Jack Pacey, President of Verathon Medical Canada and inventor of the GlideScope video laryngoscope. "Verathon Medical is committed to not only providing the right-sized tools for pediatric patients, but also providing the right educational information needed to help physicians who routinely intubate children, as well as those who infrequently work with kids.  Dr. Gooden's expertise and teaching style make her a wonderful partner in this effort."

The instructional DVD is free and available while supplies last. The DVD is currently being shipped to hundreds of customers around the world who are registering for it on the company Web site verathon.com, and through a DVD trailer on YouTube.  A video podcast of the new pediatric educational DVD is available on anesthesiologynews.com.

GlideScope covers a full range of pediatric airways

The GlideScope AVL Preterm/Small Child video laryngoscope instrument provides the right-sized solution for small airways, with four single-use sizes for children from preterm to 28 kg.  A reusable GVL® 2, introduced in October 2011, is designed for patients from 4-20 kg. Optimized for NICU, OR and ED settings, the AVL Preterm/Small Child delivers a consistently clear view of the airway and enhanced maneuverability, enabling fast intubations.
