Why Single Patient Use?

Reusable Laryngoscopes are classified as high risk, and handles are a known source of cross-contamination. Studies have shown that decontamination using impregnated germicidal wipes is ineffective - with between 75%1 and 86%2 of “patient ready” handles remaining positive for bacterial contamination. 

The AAGBI Safety Guideline on Infection Control 3 recommends that reusable laryngoscope handles be “sterilised by SSDs after every use”, and concludes “single-use disposable equipment will remove the difficulties of reuse and decontamination procedures. The use of such equipment is to be encouraged”.

BritePro Solo not only offers optimal patient safety, reliability and convenience of single use, but is cost effective 4,5 compared with reusable purchase, maintenance, replacement, reprocessing and sterilisation costs, and overcomes the problems associated with reusable systems:

- Laryngoscope failure rates as high as 30-50% as a result of reprocessing.6,7

- Risk of cross-contamination resulting from poor cleaning or bacteria that remain following cleaning.1,2

- Frequent loss of product and potential time delays in product availability.

- Diminished light transfer over time that can lead to lower rates of first intubation success as compared to disposable metal blades.6,7
