Date:10/12/2011

BOTHELL, Wash., Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Verathon Inc. is pleased to introduce the GlideScope® AVL Reusable video laryngoscope.  Designed for 1st Pass Success, this new reusable configuration for the GlideScope AVL (advanced video laryngoscope system) features a digital color monitor with DVD-clarity, an anti-fogging mechanism that resists clouding and lens secretions, and advanced resolution output for OR theater viewing.  Its integrated real-time recording captures the details of difficult intubations to help confirm tube placement and facilitate teaching.  Offered in four sizes, the new AVL Reusable covers a wide range of patients.  Now healthcare providers can choose the advanced video laryngoscope configuration, reusable or single use, that is best for their facility.

"While many of our customers appreciate the advantages of the AVL, some have told us they prefer reusable versions of the GlideScope," said Dr. John Pacey, inventor of the GlideScope and President of Verathon Medical Canada ULC.  "Our new product team designed a great digital, reusable scope to meet the need.  Now physicians can choose which GlideScope AVL configuration they like best."

Newly Designed GVL 2 for Small Patients

Verathon® has enhanced the capability of its GlideScope AVL Reusable by adding a newly designed GVL® 2 for small patients.  Featuring a slimmer profile, the GVL 2 is intended for pediatric patients weighing 4 to 20 kg.  As pediatric intubations can often become challenging, this redesigned laryngoscope delivers consistently clear, real-time views, enabling swift intubation in unpredictable clinical conditions.  It joins the product line which now offers four reusable size options: GVL 2, 3, 4, 5.

The new GlideScope AVL Reusable video laryngoscope and the GVL 2 will debut at the 2011 American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) annual meeting in Chicago, Booth #2003, and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Scientific Assembly in San Francisco, Booth #1810, both in October.
