The Standard Macintosh Laryngoscope Set features the Macintosh blades which are the most popular of all curved-blade styles. The Macintosh blade design incorporates a gentle, continuous curve from the tip to the proximal end. The curve is compressed into the vallecula and the blade lifted, indirectly raising the epiglottis. The blade height assists in intubating patients with limited oral access. The Standard Macintosh set includes both of Welch Allyn's cell battery lightweight handles and lightweight blades for maximum maneuverability.
Blades are manufactured from one piece stainless steel, and the handles of chrome-plated brass, to assure a lifetime of performance. Handles feature a knurled finish for a comfortable and secure grip.
Welch Allyn's laryngoscope design uses a single piece of 304-series stainless steel as its load-bearing member. This one-piece construction of the Welch Allyn blade is more robust than the typical competitive product. Furthermore, its one-piece blade construction eliminates the potentially weaker soldered or brazed joint.
Welch Allyn's innovative design incorporates an easy-to-remove light pipe that eliminates the difficult-to cleanareas of most competitive laryngoscopes.
Removable Light Pipe
Another feature designed to help improve the cleaning of a Welch Allyn blade is its surface finish. Typicallaryngoscope finishes have a surface roughness of 32 in. The surface finish used on all Welch Allyn blades hasa roughness of just 8 in. This creates a surface texture that is approximately four times smoother thancompetitive blades, resulting in an easier-to-clean, stain-resistant laryngoscope blade. What's more, the surfacefinish is not a plating, and therefore does not alter the 304-series stainless steel construction of the blade itself.
- Single-piece stainless steel construction ensures blade integrity
- Removable light pipe and smooth surface design
- Blades are upgradeable to fiber optic and repairable at a fraction of the cost of replacement blades
- Free blade repolishing service ensures long life
- Lightweight standard laryngoscope handles with knurled finish
