Description of the Welch Allyn English MacIntosh Standard (Lamp) Laryngoscope Blade Size 3
E-MacIntosh, or "English"-MacIntosh, blades are the most popular style of laryngoscope blade outside the United States. Their design, although based heavily upon the original MacIntosh blade, differs in several aspects. First, the curve of the E-Mac is more continuous from the proximal to distal end. This improves "lifting" mechanics. Second, overall length is increased to help assist intubation in patients with an anterior larynx. Finally, the profile or height of the instrument has been reduced for easier intubation in patients with limited oral access. The E-Mac series is the result of continual discussions with customers regarding improvement in the design and manufacture of laryngoscope blades. This is the first new line of laryngoscope blades manufactured by Welch Allyn since introduction of the Miller laryngoscope in 1941. The Welch Allyn English MacIntosh Laryngoscope Blade, Size 3 is the smart choice. Features:
Reduced handle and blade weight for improved balance and maneuverability, facilitating even the most difficult intubations.
Blades easily convert from lamp to fiber optic illumination, making upgrading economical.
Repairable, allowing replacement of the deteriorating light pathways for a fraction of the cost of a replacement blade.
Increased length, reduced profile, and continual curve help achieve sucessful intubations in even the most difficult patients.
Single-piece stainless steel blades ensure blade integrity (no soldered joints).
