New Laryngoscope

From Medgadget:

The Airway Scope AWS-S100 newly released by PENTAX makes possible to perform an tracheal intubation easily.The AWS-S100 has an imaging CCD and LED light attached to its tip. AWS-S100 is paired with an Intlock blade with curved shape. These features allow the operator to verify conditions in the oral cavity and the intubation status during tracheal intubation on a 2.4-inch color LCD monitor. With this device, there is no need to extend the patient's neck or apply excessive force. By placing the airway scope under the epiglottis and raising it lightly, it is possible to insert an endotracheal tube into the trachea. The Airway Scope AWS-S100 supports even less experienced operators can perform fast and accurate tracheal intubation, thus greatly reducing the burden on the operator and the patient alike...

The angle of the built-in monitor screen can be adjusted for easier viewing. This makes it possible to perform tracheal intubation while comfortably viewing inside the patient's mouth cavity from various position, regardless of whether the patient is in a cranial position, on his side, or facing upright..
