Verathon® Introduces the GlideScope® Direct Intubation Trainer

BOTHELL, Wash., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Verathon Inc. is pleased to introduce the GlideScope® Direct intubation trainer, designed to facilitate instruction of classic direct laryngoscopy.



Made of stainless steel, the GlideScope Direct is a reusable blade with the look and feel of a standard 3.5 size Macintosh blade.  The GlideScope Direct integrates with GlideScope Cobalt AVL video technology allowing instructors to separately watch a direct laryngoscopy on the monitor and supervise their student's direct laryngoscopy procedure as they intubate.

Device integration with the Cobalt AVL allows the GlideScope Direct to offer airway views in DVD-clarity, advanced resolution output for operating room theater viewing and real-time recording to confirm tube placement.  This advanced video technology also allows for instructor and student to review airway cases after the procedures.

"While airway management is moving toward daily use of video laryngoscopes, we recognize that many who instruct airway management want to continue to teach basic direct laryngoscopy skills to their students," stated Dr. Jack Pacey, inventor of the GlideScope video laryngoscope and President of Verathon Medical Canada.  "The GlideScope Direct gives instructors the view they need to help guide and instruct their students, real time, during direct laryngoscopy."

Because the GlideScope Direct is compatible with the GlideScope Cobalt AVL, it enjoys key AVL system attributes such as a digital camera, anti-fogging technology, recording capability, and an onboard video tutorial.  

The Direct intubation trainer may also be used, at the clinician's discretion, to perform video-guided direct laryngoscopy in a clinical setting.

The GlideScope Direct intubation trainer debuted this month at the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Annual Meeting, in San Diego, California, and will become available in January.
