Since my article on Search for the Sub$100 video laryngoscope, I have received a fair amount of emails from interested parties. VividMedical, the makers of the Vividtrac disposable video laryngoscope featured in the testing video by Master DuCanto, kindly informed me of an exciting development in their product line.
The Vividtrac device is being redesigned with a longer blade and resited guide channel. I am testing it soon and will post another article once I also get Master DuCanto to run his own independent testing.
Also upcoming soon for commercial release is VividWiFi, a wireless adaptor that attaches to the Vividtrac and transmits the video to your iPhone or Ipad via an app.
Why is this relevant or worthy? Consider being able to perform video laryngoscopy with a sub$100 device (final price to be confirmed) that you carry in your pocket along with your iPhone. No lugging around large unwieldy displays or losing them! Could you even Face Time the intubation to another provider?
Check out the video of the device in action below!
