Category Description

<p>Find and buy Laryngoscopes from verified suppliers on MedicalSearch. Laryngoscopes are used to examine the back part of a patient&rsquo;s throat including the larynx.</p><p>Factors to consider when buying a Laryngoscope:</p><ul><li><strong>Type of Blade</strong> - laryngoscope blades come in two different types: curved and straight. While both aid in the visualization of a patient&rsquo;s airway, opt for a curved blade for intubation in adults and a straight blade for use in children.</li><li><strong>Size of Blade</strong> - Laryngoscope blades vary greatly in sizes, with 00 as the smallest and ideal for pediatrics while the largest being size 4. However, your patient&rsquo;s age should help you choose the right blade size for the intubating procedure.</li><li><strong>Disposable or reusable</strong> - Disposable handles and blades are more economically attractive and offer enhanced productivity than reusable ones. They are also best for use on-the-go, on code carts, and when handling highly infectious cases.</li><li><strong>Type of handle</strong> - Choose a handle that you can use with different types of blades for different age groups. For added flexibility and convenience, consider a 1 in 4 handle, allowing you to use it for adults, teenager, children, and neonate patients. The handle should also be ergonomically designed to offer a comfortable, secure grip.</li><li><strong>Size of handle</strong> - The common handle sizes include, standard, short, and penlight handles. Short handles work best for patients with short necks, large breasts, and barrel chests. If you&rsquo;ll be mostly dealing with smaller blades, you might want to choose penlight handles due to their thinner diameters.</li></ul><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Contact our vendors for a free quote or expert advice on Laryngoscopes.
