Make Your First Attempt Your Best Attempt

The McGRATH™ MAC enhanced direct laryngoscope combines the power of video with the familiarity of direct laryngoscopy. Priced to be used every day, the McGRATH™ MAC enhanced direct laryngoscope keeps you ready for the unexpected. By providing both direct and inline video views, the McGRATH™ MAC enhanced direct laryngoscope helps you identify and respond to unpredicted difficult airway cases faster with fewer attempts, and confirm intubation success sooner1,2 with greater confidence.

  • Inline camera provides video imaging while keeping direct laryngoscopy techniques.
  • Anterior camera provides both direct and indirect views along one line-of-sight.
  • Moderate-curve Macintosh blade lifts the anatomy for a clear, direct view and tube path.
  • Camera design avoids the extreme tube curve, added setup time and awkward cord-bound operation of traditional video laryngoscopes.
  • The super slim blade profile improves access and minimizes dental contact.
  • 250-minute battery life and minute-by-minute charge indication confirms device battery life.
