KARL STORZ has made significant contributions to the field of airway management in intensive and emergency medicine in recent years and decades. Particularly for dealing with the complex area of the unexpected difficult airway, KARL STORZ offers a whole range of instruments that can help to minimize the occurrence of complications related to difficult airway management, while at the same time affording optimal viewing conditions.
The broad range of products from KARL STORZ is the company’s trump card. In addition to conventional laryngoscopes, flexible intubation fiberscopes and the BONFILS retromolar intubation endoscope, the C-MAC® video laryngoscopes in particular have become established on the market. The accompanying C-MAC® monitor is at the heart of the complete system which allows the connection of all intubation endoscopes and all C-MAC® video laryngoscopes as well as the newly developed flexible intubation video endoscopes (FIVE). Specifically designed for prehospital settings or fully mobile use, the C-MAC® PM (Pocket Monitor) is available as a waterproof video unit.

The Video Laryngoscope for Single Use that Meets the Highest Hygiene Standards
The C-MAC® S video laryngoscope has the same outstanding features and all the familiar benefits of the reusable C-MAC® video laryngoscopes while meeting the highest hygiene standards. In contrast to other video laryngoscopes for single use, the blade and handle form one continuous piece which significantly reduces the danger of cross-contamination, even in the case of high-risk patients. The ergonomically designed imager can be reprocessed at temperatures up to 65 °C and thus completes the hygiene chain. In line with ISO 7376 standards, the C-MAC® S video laryngoscope features high tensile strength and is extremely robust.

For solutions that fit: The new MACINTOSH 0
