Instruments, ideas and solutions
Laryngoscope systems, comprising a wide variety of handles and different blades for intubation of the respiratory tract, make up one of our areas of expertise. Not only do we offer the classic fibre-optic (F.O.) handles; we’ve added a new range to our product portfolio. The EasyClean LED laryngoscope handle cuts a convincing figure with its robust, non-slip surface and is the first product of its kind – in the world – to be 100% waterproof*.
The “reusable versus disposable” issue is a matter particularly close to our hearts, because we find the tendency of some facilities to generally choose disposable products both concerning and difficult to understand. On the one hand, because the cost analysis points towards reusable laryngoscope systems, even from a short-term perspective. On the other hand, because the issues of waste avoidance and environmental pollution are playing an increasingly important role in intensive care too. You will find more information about this here.

There are a number of reasons why anesthesiologists may not have the best equipment in their ORs. In many cases they are forced to use disposables or cheap reusables.
In this presentation, Sara Stocstill of HEINE will address the main concerns that have led institutions to purchase disposable or cheap reusable laryngoscopes. Sara will help you become a crucial member of the purchasing team and arm you with relevant information that will help make a case for the quality instruments you need in your ORs.
Sara will discuss why HEINE is a better option based on a review of the following misconceptions,
- That regulatory compliance is more easily met with disposable laryngoscopes
- That disposable and cheap reusables are more cost effective
- That there is an environmental advantage to using disposables
- And finally, that quality reusable instruments are more difficult to reprocess.
Finally, Sara will introduce you to the result of our intensive research surrounding market misconceptions: the HEINE EasyClean Laryngsocope handle. Through innovative design, careful IFU revisions and the quality craftsmanship you can expect from HEINE, we launched the highest quality, most cost effective laryngoscope handle on the market.
