In out-of-hospital emergency rescue, the laryngoscope is used during endotracheal intubation. This is one of the most important tools for securing the human airway so that, for example, the person being treated can be continuously ventilated during resuscitation. In summary, a breathing tube is placed in the trachea and sealed with the help of a balloon attached to the tube, so that ventilation is ensured despite any complications that may arise. For this purpose, the jaw is brought into the necessary position by using a laryngoscope. The laryngoscopes on the ambulances, which are largely analogous, were analyzed, revised and further developed. The resulting concept enables pain-free work, ergonomic movement cycles, wireless image transmission to other selected units and, as a result, faster information exchange within the team.
