Timesco have recently launched our Frequently Asked Questions Single Use Laryngoscopes page where we have provided answers to the most frequently asked questions to support your decision between single use and reusable blades and handles.

As cross infection is now a major concern throughout all aspects of medical care and with the growing problems surrounding resilient virus strains and prions, guidance by the Association of Anesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland (AAGBI) indicates that single use devices are to be preferred (see Infection Control in Anaesthesia 2nd Edition, 2008). Single use airway products are a vital part of combating infections in anaesthesia.

Over the years, Timesco have pioneered the development of single use laryngoscope blades that provide unrivalled clinical performance. Our Europa and Callisto single use metal blades are recognised as the No.1 systems throughout the U.K. and are used as the blades of choice in most major U.K. hospitals.

Despite their limited life, all our single use products are made to provide the highest level of clinical performance, without compromising patient care, and yet they are economical enough to be disposed of after use.

We hope that you find the information available on our Frequently Asked Questions Single Use Laryngoscopes page useful. We are, of course, always happy to answer any further questions that you may have regarding our extensive product range.

You can contact your local sales representative alternatively, you can contact our dedicated Customer Support Team by telephone on: +44 (0)1268 297710, via email: [email protected]

We hope that you will find the page useful and we would welcome any suggestions for additional information that you would like to be available on our website.
