<p class="txct">Laryngoscopes  With Conventional  Illumination</p> <p><span class="txct">AMERICAN PROFILE</span><br /> <span class="tpfont">The MacIntosh series laryngoscopes,designed by R. MacIntosh in 1941, are the predominant choice of the curved blade types. During laryngoscopy, the tip or “beak” of the blade is compressed into the angle formed by the base of the tongue and the epiglottis (vallecula), indirectly raising the epiglottis. The spatula of the blade has a smooth and gentle curve extending from the lock of the tip. In cross section, the construction resembles that of a reverse Z flange, facilitating greater access during intubation. A wide variety of sizes are available. Made of stainless steel.</span></p> <p><em><strong><span class="tpfont">OPTIONS:</span></strong></em></p> <p>5-5052-00      Neonate                              SIZE: 0           LENGTH: 80mm             HEIGHT: 15mm</p> <p>5-5052-01      Infant                                   SIZE: 1           LENGTH: 87mm             HEIGHT: 15mm</p> <p>5-5052-02      Child                                    SIZE: 2           LENGTH: 108mm           HEIGHT: 15mm</p> <p>5-5052-03      Medium Adult                      SIZE: 3           LENGTH: 128mm           HEIGHT: 24mm</p> <p>5-5052-35      Extended Medium Adult      SIZE: 3.5        LENGTH: 144mm           HEIGHT: 22mm</p> <p>5-5052-04      Large Adult                          SIZE: 4           LENGTH: 159mm           HEIGHT: 22mm</p>
