Video laryngoscopy used in the operating room supports first-attempt success of airway intubation. Research also shows that video laryngoscopy can help prevent clinician exposure to droplet-borne pathogens and further improve your safety.3 Recent guidelines highlight the risks of contracting COVID-19 among those caring for infected patients.3 The guidelines recommend that airway management clinicians take precautions to further protect against droplet-borne pathogens.3
The McGRATH™ MAC video laryngoscope is proven to improve first time success rate,1,2 reduce time,([FOOTNOTE=Alvis BD, Hester D, Watson D, Higgins M, St Jacques P.

Minimizing exposure, securing the airway, and containing patients’ exhaled gases may keep you safe and improve first-attempt intubation.
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.([FOOTNOTE=Gaszyński T. Comparison of the glottic view during video-intubation in super obese patients: a series of cases.
