On Scene Review: Truphatek Truelite Laryngeal Scope

About our Reviewer: I’m Scot A. Kreger PHRN. I started in EMS in 1984 as an Army Medic stationed at Ft. Ritchie, Md. While serving at Ft. Ritchie I obtained my Emergency Medical Technician.  Shortly after my discharge from the Army 1987 I became a Paramedic . In 2004 I graduated from Delaware County Community College with my Nursing Degree and started working at Brandywine Hospital. After 2 years of working in the Emergency Department I transferred to Medic 93 where I currently work for BWH.  So all told I have 30 years Emergency Medical Service experience. 

I got the chance recently to try out a disposable Laryngeal Scope: The Truphatek Truelite Disposable LED Laryngeal Scope. I have to say I was a little skeptical about it at first, partly due to its size, but in the end I was pleasantly surprised.

Yes the handle is small, but I feel most anyone will have no trouble holding the handle and will even find it comfortable and easy to use. The blade I used was a MAC 4, and they are permanently attached, had a bright LED bulb, which really lights up the mouth and throat giving you a bright and clear view of the vocal cords.

I feel The Truphatek Truelite would be an asset to both Tactical Team members due to its small size and how it folds up nice and small for easy storage. It would also be an asset to the Medic who uses it on a daily basis. Besides being easy to hold and work with, it is also easy on your wallet and you can't beat that!
