THE PRODUCT: LARYNGOSCOPE
The medical instrument that doctors normally use to look into the vocal folds and the glottis is Laryngoscope. Manuel Patricio Rodriguez Garcia invented the first laryngoscope in 1854. Modern-day laryngoscopes systems began in the early 1940 and since then have evolved in terms of safety and least possible trauma.
A Laryngoscope has two components –
- A blade with an interchangeable hook,
- A handle containing batteries needed for illumination.
The Blade is engaged onto the handle top; there the blade heel contacts the handle’s electrical points, thus illuminating the patient airway.
Types of Laryngoscopes
There are several types of laryngoscopes; the most common in usage worldwide are manufactured and exported by Scope:
Conventional LED Light Laryngoscopes
In these Laryngoscopes, blades have a lamp near the distal end and have an electrical connection to illuminate the lamp, powered by the batteries in the handle.
Fibre Optic LED Light Laryngoscopes
Advancements in lighting technologies eliminated electric wires, lamps & some contacts from the conventional laryngoscope blades, thus producing a very dependable, cold and much brighter illumination. The Fibre Optic handles are fitted with the HYPER LED lamps that produce excellent illumination, which follows quartz glass fibre optic bundle or plastic light guide along the blade to illuminate the patient’s oral cavity.
Types of Blades
Laryngoscope blade design has evolved over the years, modern-day laryngoscopes have two popular blade profiles:
Curved (Macintosh) Blades
Macintosh Blade is the most common and popular blade suggested by sir Robert Macintosh, MD in 1941. This curved blade profile is such that its tip is advanced to the base of the patient’s epiglottis thereby lifting the vocal cords that can be visualised, allowing for endotracheal tube insertion.
As described by William Miller, MD, a straight blade is another most common blade. In this profile, the blade tip is advanced, to just past the patient’s epiglottis. Miller blade is then raised, lifting the epiglottis thus exposing the vocal cords and allowing the endotracheal tube to be inserted along the flange into the larynx.
