Affordable AUM Video Laryngoscope

Recent studies indicate that video laryngoscopy is the new gold standard for endotracheal intubation. However its widespread use is limited due to financial limitations. Our design patented Video Laryngoscope (VL) overcomes this limitation making our device affordable for all including trainees.

Our VL allows better glottic visualization, a higher success rate for difficult airways, and a faster learning curve. It also circumvents optimizing maneuvers like external manipulation of the larynx, change in head positioning etc., minimizing the trauma to the glottis.

The intubation can be recorded on your phone for future reference and for patient records.

The reusable VL designs utilizes waterproof, a high-resolution miniature video camera embedded into a stainless steel Macintosh blade.


Applications

  • Can be used comfortably and without any trauma even in paediatric age groups.
  • Lesser manipulations leading to lesser Patient stimulations.
  • Avoids eventful intubations.
