Timesco Healthcare Ltd are the UK distributor for the Pentax AWS system – a video laryngoscope developed for safer and more dependable tracheal intubation.

The system is especially effective when dealing with cases where intubation is made difficult by the patient’s condition. It is a successor to the AWS S-100 and is the lightest ever model at 235g (without battery and PBLADE) making it even easier to safely conduct tracheal intubation.

Product Code: 6000.100.00

A video output port allows the user to connect the Airway Scope to a larger medical monitor or video recording device, making it possible to simultaneously show footage from the scope on a larger monitor or record for education or documentation.

With a 2.4 inch, 3 mega-pixel high-definition colour LCD screen providing vivid images of the larynx and glottis, and a cross-hair display on the screen, less experienced doctors will be able to reliably conduct tracheal intubation.

The Airway Scope has a low power consumption and is designed for extended continuous use on 3V, AA x 2 batteries (approximately one hour) and can be sterilised using alocohol or cidex. It is waterproof ensuring safe and dependable use outdoors, even in rainy conditions.
