WAYNE, Pa., June 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX), a leading global provider of medical technologies, today announced a partnership with Shenzhen Insighters Medical Technology Co., Ltd. as the exclusive U.S. distributor of the Insighters® Video Laryngoscope system, which is designed to inspect the upper glottic airway and facilitate endotracheal intubation.
The Insighters® Video Laryngoscope system of interchangeable accessories and components supports endotracheal tube placement in a variety of intubation scenarios, while allowing clinicians to share and record real-time high-resolution images and video. The IS6 Handle can be used in conjunction with both the small screen to allow for a portable video laryngoscope system and the large workstation for routine use in the operating room. The near-field communication (NFC) connector allows for a wireless connection to the large workstation monitor to provide an unobstructed view even when space is limited.
The Insighters® Video Laryngoscope System joins the portfolio of industry-leading Airway Management devices available from Teleflex for everyday airway procedures. This new tool will support clinicians’ use of the American Society of Anesthesiologists Difficult Airway Algorithm in navigating challenging intubation situations. Studies show the use of video laryngoscopy devices improves the glottic view and may reduce airway trauma and the number of failed intubations.1
“We are excited about the partnership with Insighters Medical, as it enhances our portfolio of industry-leading airway devices clinicians use every day. The Insighters® Video Laryngoscope system incorporates innovative technologies with interchangeable components to address a multitude of clinical preference with a single system,” said Kevin Robinson, President and General Manager, Anesthesia and Emergency Medicine Division, Teleflex Incorporated.
