APA™ Miller Blade
Enhanced visualisation of paediatric airways!
APA™ is a multifunctional Video Laryngoscope for routine, paediatric, rescue and difficult airways. Its multiple interchangeable components permit you to switch between MAC, MIL, Oxygenation and Difficult Airway. Its interchangable Camera Modules facilitate the switch between paediatric and adult airways on one inuitive device.
“In children, using video laryngoscopy is particulary attractive solution because awake intubation may not be feasible, fibreoptic endoscopy is more difficult and the highoxygen demand limits the time available for intubation.“ Ahmed-Nusrath A. et al. Anaesthesia, 2011; 66:10(868)

APA Oxy Blade™
Need more time?
The APA Oxy Blade™ facilitates intubation by delivering 15L/min of oxygen, utilising the Venturi effect, to the upper airway extending the time it takes for a patient to desaturate.1
The APA Oxy Blade™ consists of a 4 metre long oxygen tubing and is used to assist routine endotracheal intubation in a similar manner to a standard MAC laryngoscope when additional apnoeic oxygenation is clinically advantageous.
The APA Oxy Blade™ is a versatile product which can be used in many areas1:
- Theatre/Operating Room
- Emergency Department
- Intensive Care Units
- Level 1 hospital wards
- Pre-Hospital setting

VIDEO ADVANCED STANDARD LARYNGOSCOPY
The standard video laryngoscopy with the APA™ is intuitive and helps reduce the risk of injury to the airways.
TRADITION AND INNOVATION
AN INTUITIVE APPROACH
The APA™ video laryngoscope provides a logical step forward from standard laryngoscopy, because it represents an intuitive approach for users with experience in direct laryngoscopy. Connect the monitor using the APA™ Handle, and the device turns into a video laryngoscope with a 9 cm display.
- When used with Macintosh disposable blades (size 3 and 4), the APA™ provides the intuitive feel of a conventional laryngoscope.
- The type of technology which is required for the APA™ corresponds to routine Macintosh intubation. The four types of blade (disposable) come equipped with anti fog coating and have many uses.
SIMPLE & RELIABLE
The video laryngoscope can be used for both routine procedures as well as for airways which are difficult to intubate. The indirect view provided by the video laryngoscope requires a minimal amount of effort, and a reduced manipulation of the airways.
- Both beginners as well as training co-ordinators are able to use the video advanced standard laryngoscopy as a sensible instrument during training sessions. For specific training purposes, the screen can be connected to an external monitor or to a storage device via a video connection.
- The use of disposable blades minimises the risk of contamination from patient to patient.
