Medan Video Laryngoscope

The Innovative Video Laryngoscope, with disposable blade, specifically designed for everyday use in conventional and complex intubation procedures
It's 2015 and in anaesthesia a critical procedure like intubating a patient is still performed with the Macintosh laryngoscope first sold in 1943.  Were surgeons use robots and state of the art video instruments, the anaesthesiologist uses simply a flashlight for life-saving critical procedure.  Statistics show that in direct laryngoscopy first attempt intubation fails in about 2% of intubation attempts.  There are millions of intubations each day….. This leads to stressful and potentially dangerous situations almost every day in an average hospital. 

In the case of failed intubation,  the "difficult airway chart" is wheeled in.  Often the patient is already suffering from swelling and bleeding of the mucous membrane compromising intubation conditions and adding to the risk factors for the patient.

The solution is simple. Get rid of the flashlight and start every intubation with the Medan video laryngoscope.

Supporting Healthcare brings you the first affordable system with disposable blades in the same price range as currently when direct laryngoscopy is used. The major plus point being that the Medan video laryngoscope can be used for traditional direct laryngoscopy as well as in video mode.  It comes in two models, child and adult versions and uses disposable blades.  Blades are available in a wide size range; normal blade and in grooved blade for tube guidance.  Facilitating intubation in newborns right up to large adults. 

Scope of application
  • Conventional and challenging tracheal intubation procedures
  • Used in clinical anesthesia, emergency and ICU treatment
  • Tracheal intubation procedures in various clinical departments
  • Clinical teaching of tracheal intubation
  • High definition camera and high resolution on handle LCD monitor
  • One button, both for photo and video recordings  
  • Rotation of the monitor at front and rear 
  • Rotation angle of the monitor is 180° to the right and 90° to the left
  • Robust metal handle, suitable for direct laryngoscopy (perfect for training purposes)
  • Cordless and lightweight for maximum portability
  • Two models, an adult and a child version
  • Strong and rigid disposable blades
  • Choice of 2 different blade sizes per model (comparable to Mac 0 up to Mac 4)
  • Choice between normal and grooved blade for tube guidance
  • Fully charged battery gives 2 hours of continuous use

The main advantage of using video laryngoscopy for every intubation is increased patient comfort.  Since far less force is used in intubation, much less or almost no flexing in needed.  This in turn means the adverse effects such as tooth damage, bleeding, neck problems, etc are considerably lower. Even simple inconveniences such as a soar throat or hoarseness will be less prevalent due to a less traumatic intubation procure.

  • Reduces risk of failed first attempts at intubation
  • Reduces risk of oesophageal intubation
  • Reduces risk of damage to the vocal cords
  • Reduces risk of damaging the teeth
  • Reduces risk of damage or bleeding of the mucous membrane
  • Reduces risk of conversion to advanced intubation methods
  • Reduces risks of cervical spine due to hyper extension
  • Better visibility on placement of the endotracheal tube
  • Easier determination of the right depth of the tube
  • Shortens the time required for and reduces risks involved with complex intubation
  • Documentation of the intubation is possible
  • User-friendly. Only two buttons to operate
  • Assists with the enhancement of training methods of the intubation procedure
  • Suitable for traditional direct laryngoscopy
  • Very economical in use

Compact and convenient fluid warmers

ivNow heat quickly and maintains a safe temperature of intravenous and irrigation fluids. The specially designed shape of the warming surface cradles 0.5-, 1-, 2- and 3-liter medical solution bags.

Each fluid warming compartment is separately controlled and has an L.E.D. display. Sensors within the heating plate detect the intravenous bag and this employs the heater to immediately warm the fluid.

Puts warmed fluid at your fingertips
The two built in temperature sensors monitor the temperature of the fluid continuously and maintain the fluid temperature within +0/-2ºC of the required temperature.

The electronic control monitors the length of time that any one bag has been held at a specific temperature.  This information can be displayed at the touch of a button. This will also flag up to the user when a fluid bag has been held at temperature for a period longer than 14 days. This puts you in total control of warmed fluid and gives you access to it where and when you need it.

The key features of the ivNow™ fluid warmers are:

  • Modular configuration
  • Wall-mounted, countertop, or pole-mounted options
  • Holds 0.5-, 1-, 2- or 3-litre medical solution bags
  • Anodized aluminium heat plate
  • Lightweight, medical grade plastic housing
  • Intelligent bag sensors
  • Dual temperature sensors
  • Heats to 40°C in 30 minutes or less. Accurate to +0°/-2°C
Possible configurations
Multiple chamber units are available from the factory in the following configurations as per below:

ivNow-1 (one bag capacity)
This is suitable for placement on a countertop, can be mounted on an optional countertop stand, can be mounted on a mobile equipment pole stand or attached to a wall using specially designed brackets. (Wall brackets are sold separately)

ivNow-2 (two bag capacity)
This is suitable for placement on a countertop, can be mounted on a countertop pedestal stand, or attached to a wall using specially designed brackets.  (Wall brackets are sold separately)

ivNow-3 (three bag capacity)
Only suitable for countertop pedestal stand, a heavy duty mobile equipment pole stand, or on a wall using mounting brackets.  (Wall brackets are sold separately)

When entering a hospital almost every patient will receive a bag of I.V. fluids. This would appear very simple however, warming fluids is a continual challenge faced by hospitals. With such a great variety of products being used and the increased scrutiny from accreditation agencies, warming fluids has become an extremly demanding task and a drain on hospital resources.

In-line warmers and fluid warming cabinets (which are not always available or require a long time to warm) have been the most commonly utilised ways to warm fluids until now. The ivNow takes approximately 25 minutes to warm a 1-litre bag of fluid. This means that a unit with 6-compartments will give more than 100-litres of warmed IV fluid over a 10-hour period. The temperature is set at a standard 40°C and there is an automated data recorder built in, this will track the shelf life of each bag and provides a notification when a bag is expired.

Checkmed provides you with a clear and simple method to prepare and control medication in the OR. This greatly improves safety.

Sensitive for errors in the coordination of an OR
The current working procedure is that syringes and medication are arranged by an anaesthetist (anaesthesiologist), on every injection there is an ampoule. A second employee distributes the medication into the corresponding syringe. This is confirmed by both members of staff and initialled. This medication is then generally placed into a disposable pulp sick bowl. This procedure itself can differ per hospital and can be more or less extensive. This is a very simple procedure but can be prone to errors due to the hectic environment of an OR.

Checkmed is designed to provide a controlled and structured approach. The medication and the content of the syringe remain intact until the moment of administering the drug. Checkmed is designed to provide that all important double check. Through the use of markers it can be determined if all control conditions are fully satisfied.

Key Features
The key features and advantages of Checkmed are:

  • This is made for and by anaesthetists
  • Developed on the bases of feedback received from anesthesia personnel and anaesthesiologists
  • IGZ, MediRisk and WIP guidance requirements adhered to for design
  • Clearly structured design
  • Relationship between the medication and injection continues until time of administrating the drug
  • Small, compact and light-weight
  • Made from dust-free, biodegradable starch product (Paperfoam©)
  • Dust-free, therefore anti-bacteria
  • Disposable, so no negative hygiene issues
Patient safety is paramount for all hospital treatments. The ICZ stated in its report “Standardization is indispensable for reducing risks in operational process” the double checking of medication is essential for patient care. Errors in medication are one of the major risks in the treatment process. After 4 years of supervision and emphasis being placed on the importance of a double-check, as of 2013, only a quarter of the hospitals are adhering to these procedures. There is also no standard practices in place for the preparation of medication. Unfortunately, errors happen all too often due to the current system of using a disposable sick bowl for medication preparation.

Medirisk, the major insurer for hospitals also demands in the interest of patient safety the double check procedures are put in place. The Medirisk precedent gives a clear message.

Introduction of the double check
Introduction of the double check remains sometimes difficult, mostly with regards to the fact that “old habits die hard”. The carton sick bowl was for many years used as a standard procedure. Not originally designed for this function but cheap and readily available. In addition the cardboard is crude and dusty so an excellent carrier for bacteria, which in turn can lead to would infections arising.

There are currently non-disposable applications available however, the downside is they are heavy and cannot be moved to the patient. They of course also require cleaning. This is essential because of the some medication actually promote bacteria. Spillages on this non-disposable equipment will provide a breeding ground for bacteria and sufficient cleaning of the equipment can prove difficult in stressful situations and cannot be executed in a correct manner.
