Visualization You Can Depend On
Reliable visualization of the vocal cords is a critical requirement for successful intubation. However, research shows repeated reprocessing of reusable fiber optic laryngoscope blades can degrade light intensity and potentially reduce vocal cord visualization.1,2 Using the Rüsch® Polaris™ Single-Use Laryngoscope Blade from Teleflex may avoid the reliability issues attributed to repeated reprocessing.1,3
The fiber optic cable of the Polaris™ Laryngoscope Blade provides focused light transmission and minimizes light
scatter to deliver reliable visualization when you need it most. Its durable, metal construction offers the performance and feel of a reusable laryngoscope blade.
