Verathon Introduces the GlideScope(R) Cobalt Advanced Video Laryngoscope (AVL); New Digital Technology Facilitates Quick Intubations

BOTHELL, Wash., Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Verathon Inc. is pleased to introduce the GlideScope(®) Cobalt AVL, an advanced video laryngoscope that provides airway views in DVD clarity, enabling quick intubation. The new single use laryngoscope, featuring a digital color monitor and digital camera, offers integrated real-time recording as well as advanced resolution output for OR theater viewing. This latest addition to the GlideScope(®) brand also provides a unique on-board video tutorial. The Cobalt AVL will debut at the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) Annual Meeting on October 18, in New Orleans.


"This new GlideScope(®) is taking video laryngoscopy to a totally new level," said Dr. John Pacey, inventor of the GlideScope(®) and President of Verathon Medical Canada ULC. "Digital technology, along with DVD clarity, provide great resolution in airway views. And real-time recording and the onboard tutorial are terrific advanced teaching tools."

GlideScope(®) Cobalt AVL consists of: a slim, reusable video baton which houses a high-resolution camera with a patented anti-fogging mechanism to resist lens contamination; a non-glare color monitor; and single-use, sterile GVL(®) Stats in four sizes designed for a wide range of patient weights and sizes - from small to morbidly obese.

The new Cobalt AVL offers a unique ergonomic design, several innovative "smart" features and rugged construction, ideal for a variety of clinical settings. Easy to use, the Cobalt AVL's recording options help confirm tube placement, and the onboard tutorial makes the instrument easy to learn and to teach. And the new system is offered in both convenient mobile stand and IV pole configurations.

Designed for 1st Pass Success, the Cobalt AVL in conjunction with the GlideRite(®) Rigid Stylet, are used to facilitate intubation.
