Verathon Launches New Portable Handheld Video Laryngoscope System: GlideScope Go

Compact, easy to use, and ready on demand, GlideScope Go is the latest in a line of industry-leading video laryngoscope systems from the go-to source for emergent and procedural airway management solutions.

GlideScope Go is a durable, portable, high-resolution system for clinicians in hospital and pre-hospital settings. It features a scratch-resistant 3.5" color display with anti-glare coating and a wide field of view, designed for improved visualization and rapid, first-pass intubation. The unit is compatible with GlideScope® Spectrum single-use blades, for patients ranging from neonate to large adults.

"GlideScope Go is an intuitive, handheld solution that adds versatility to clinical airway management," said Tim Shauf, Vice President & General Manager of the Respiratory & Surgical Solutions business group at Verathon. "Combining GlideScope Go with our Spectrum blades delivers a high-resolution image powered by the latest advancements in lighting and camera technology—including Dynamic Light Control™ and Ambient Light Reduction™."

Like all GlideScope instruments, GlideScope Go is designed to provide consistently clear airway views in a wide variety of settings. Additionally, Spectrum blades are fully disposable to help reduce cross-contamination and aid in the infection control efforts.

"GlideScope Go gives clinicians the confidence of GlideScope® technology wherever and whenever they need it," said Verathon President Earl Thompson. "They're ideal for use in small spaces, emergent procedures, and any setting that requires mobility. GlideScope Go also complements GlideScope cart-based systems, so facilities can standardize their video laryngoscope training and efficiency."
