Laryngoscopy is the endoscopy of the throat, which allows examination of the larynx using a laryngoscope. Laryngoscopes are used to facilitate tracheal intubation during general anesthesia or cardiopulmonary emergencies.
Laryngoscopes are made up of two parts, a blade and a handle. There are two common shapes for laryngoscopes blades, curved and straight. Macintosh blades are the most commonly used curved blades. Miller blades are the most commonly used straight blades. Laryngoscope blades contain either a standard or fiber optic light source. Fiber optic blades provide brighter light output than standard blades. Propper reusable laryngoscope blades feature a large diameter integrated fiber optic bundle, which allows for increased light transmission. The integrated design allows for easy cleaning and sterilization using steam, EO or Sterrad (vH2O2). Propper Macintosh Blades are available in size 1 -5. Propper Miller Blades are available in size 0 – 4. They are made of select quality 304 Stainless Steel and have flawless Ni/Cr plating.
Laryngoscope handles are available in a variety of sizes. Laryngoscope handles contain batteries and a light bulb. Propper handles are available in 3 sizes, stubby, AA or C. They are available with xenon light bulbs or Superlume® LED light bulbs. Superlume® handles feature the brightest output of any current handle. They have a high color temperature which allows for the ideal conditions during intubation.
