You do your best to avoid airway complications. You know they can be associated with significant patient morbidity and unnecessary expense.2,3,4 But sometimes they occur when you least expect.5,6
With the McGRATH™ MAC video laryngoscope, you can be better prepared for the unexpected. Combining confidence with simplicity and convenience — so your first attempt is your best.
The Next Generation McGRATH™ MAC video laryngoscope is an enhanced, more robust device, designed to be used routinely in fast-paced hospital and EMS environments. The latest design offers:*
The McGRATH™ MAC video laryngoscope combines line-of-sight video from its portrait display with the familiar Macintosh technique. So you retain your traditional laryngoscopy skills.
The minute-by-minute battery indication and auto- off feature effectively optimize battery life. One handle with multiple blade options. From pediatric to adult patients and routine to extreme airways.8,9
The adoption of video laryngoscopy during the pandemic highlighted the benefits of VL.

Discover what our expert Prof E. O’ Sullivan has to say about routine use of video laryngoscopy.
The next-generation McGRATH™ MAC video laryngoscope offers 2X light spread, 3X brighter camera, and 4X the resolution.
Discover our free, online education program dedicated to clinicians as yourselves, whether you are working in the OR, ICU or ER. It provides you the opportunity to discover and learn from peers how they changed their first-line approach to using video laryngoscopy as first line intubation therapy.
Because airway complications are often unexpected, McGRATH™ MAC video laryngoscopy technology gives you:
