Medical solutions provider Dilon Technologies has introduced new CoPilot VL+ video laryngoscope for optimised visualisation of the airway during placement of breathing tubes.

The portable, inexpensive, and easy-to-use airway management device is said to feature higher resolution display, powerful LEDs, and anti-fog coating for a better view of the airway.

As the system has a small footprint, it is considered suitable for all medical settings, including anaesthesia in the operating room, intensive care unit, or emergency medical responder field.

Dilon Technologies sales and marketing director Pjerin Luli said: “Our patented bougie port remains an integral feature of our disposable sheath.

“The bougie port gives our users an additional option for intubation and makes it easier to get the tube ‘around the corner’.”

The firm purchased the latest product’s predecessor, CoPilot VL video laryngoscope, in December last year to improve patient care, expanding its presence in the anaesthesia and airway space.

At the time of the deal, CoPilot VL video laryngoscope coinventor Jay Tydlaska said: “Dilon’s strong sales network, solid understanding of anaesthesia products and firm commitment to patient care makes them a great fit for us.”

Dilon’s portfolio includes dual-head and single-head gamma imaging cameras that are designed for Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) and localisation during an MBI-guided breast biopsy.

The firm also offers a surgical product called the Navigator gamma probe, which can be used for lymph node biopsy and radioactive seed localisation.
