MAGILL FORCEPS 17 cm is a medical instrument commonly used in the field of anesthesiology and emergency medicine. They are designed to aid in the placement of an endotracheal tube into a patient’s airway during intubation, which is the process of inserting a tube into the windpipe to maintain an open airway, especially when a patient is under anesthesia or unable to maintain their airway on their own.
The forceps have a curved shape that allows medical professionals to manipulate the tube and guide it through the vocal cords and into the trachea. The MAGILL FORCEPS 17 cm are available in different sizes, with a length of 17 cm indicating the overall length of the forceps. The curved design helps prevent trauma to the surrounding structures while allowing for precise control over the tube’s placement.
MAGILL FORCEPS 17 cm can also be used to remove foreign objects from the airway, making them a versatile tool in emergency situations where maintaining a clear and open airway is crucial. They are an essential part of medical equipment in settings such as operating rooms, emergency departments, and ambulances.
