Mcgrath Video Laryngoscope

mcgrath video laryngoscope

Designed by Edinburgh-based
Aircraft Medical Ltd., and distributed in the US by LMA North America, Inc., the device is being showcased at the ongoing annual meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists in Chicago.

In case you did not know, failure to ventilate and intubate in the operating
room is one of the most common causes of death in the OR. It happens rarely, but
does happen.
Securing the airway by endotracheal intubation is a key step in
anaesthesia, and the emergency resuscitation of the critically ill patient.
Intubation is assisted by use of a laryngoscope, which allows control of the
epiglottis and visualisation of the vocal chords.

The McGrath® Series 5 Fully Portable Video Laryngoscope is a novel device
which allows a clear view of the layngeal inlet during intubation...

McGrath® offers cost-effective video laryngoscopy that can dramatically reduce
the risks associated with difficult intubations, as well as high performance
single-use optical blades to combat cross infection.

The patent-pending McGrath® Series 5 provides unrivalled vision of the
larynx. This is achieved with on-board miniature camera and display technology,
representing the world's 1st fully-portable video laryngoscope

The McGrath® The World's First Fully Portable Video LaryngoscopeAn image of
the larynx is captured by the McGrathand is transferred to a compact flat panel mounted at the top of the handle

Sedation Analgesia for Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures (Contemporary Clinical Neuroscience)

Physicians, nurses, and safety experts comprehensively review sedation and analgesia to provide a completely new reference guide to safe sedation practices consistent with existing guidelines. Starting with an integrated review of the basic physiology and neurobiology of the sedated state, the authors proceed through clinical guidelines and practices, and conclude with an examination of quality-outcome measures and processes. They also review current mandates for safe sedation practices and address the key clinical issues of pharmacology, monitoring, and recovery. Special tables and figures throughout the book summarize protocols, regulatory requirements, recommended dosages, monitoring requirements, and quality assurance tools.

Anaesthesia Databook:A Perioperative and Peripartum Manual

anaesthesia databook

This is the third edition of a comprehensive book covering all aspects of perioperative and peripartum anaesthesia. Previous editions have been very well received (see reviews of the first two editions below) and this book builds on their success to be an essential purchase for all trainee and practising anaesthetists, as well as providing a valuable resource for other hospital and particularly theatre-based personnel such as surgeons, obstetricians, operating department practitioners, theatre nurses, midwives etc. The sections on medical disorders and anaesthestic problems, and on emergency conditions arising during anaesthesia or the immediate postoperative period have been expanded to include over 30 new entries and rare and unusual syndromes have been incorporated into these two main sections for ease of quick reference. The book also features a valuable list of abbreviations and a fully updated appendix containing useful addresses, telephone numbers and website details.
