During recent court proceedings against Aircraft Medical, a Scottish firm that produces the McGrath laryngoscope, Lord Hodge of the Scottish Court of Session recognized the validity of the GlideScope patent.  

Introduced in 2001, the GlideScope video laryngoscope provides a consistently clear view enabling quick intubation. Designed for 1st Pass Success, the brand has grown rapidly and now incorporates models for patients ranging from preterm/neonatal to bariatric, and offerings that span single use and reusable configurations.

With this victory, the company will also continue to innovate and vigorously prosecute infringements of its even broader intellectual property portfolio in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere.
