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 sooner([FOOTNOTE=Su YC, Chen CC, Lee YK, Lee JY, Lin KJ. Comparison of video laryngoscopes with direct laryngoscopy for tracheal intubation: a meta-analysis of randomized trials. Eur J Anaesthesiol. 2011;28(11):788-795.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),([FOOTNOTE=Levitan R, Heitz J, Sweeney M, Cooper R. The complexities of tracheal intubation with direct laryngoscopy and alternative intubation devices. Ann Emerg Med. 2011;57(3):240-247.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) 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 indicator confirms device battery life.
