Karl Storz SE & Co. KG (Tuttlingen, Germany) presented its broad portfolio of endoscopy products as well as integrated system solutions for the operating room at the 2021 edition of Arab Health held in Dubai from June 21 to 24.
At Arab Health 2021, the company showcased C-MAC, the only airway management system that allows multiple endoscopes to be connected to a single monitor. Whether performing routine or difficult intubation, the C-MAC System offers the right answer to everyday challenges encountered in airway management. The ergonomic design and excellent image display make them excellent tools for continuing education. Whether users prefer video laryngoscopes, flexible intubation endoscopes, or the new C-MAC video stylus, they can still simultaneously connect two endoscopes to a single C-MAC monitor. The new C-MAC HD monitor succeeds the long-standing legacy of the C-MAC family with superior features such as a Full HD (1920×1200) interactive touchscreen, with dual connection, picture-in-picture modes and side by side, built-in microphone and direct recording, automatic or time-machine mode (60 s before start-up) and compatibility with all C-MAC solutions.
The company also introduced the new C-MAC HD video laryngoscopes for HD imaging when combined with the 8404ZX C-MAC monitor. They are backward compatible with the 8403ZX C-MAC monitor and the pocket monitor (PM). Equipped with sturdy titanium handles, they are available in all the usual sizes from the 3rd generation (MAC, MILLER & D-BLADE). Another attraction was the company’s new C-MAC HD pocket monitor, a 3.5-inch monitor with a high contrast image even in daylight. It is capable of documenting images and videos without external memory, has an exchangeable and rechargeable battery and is completely waterproof (IPX8). The C-MAC HD pocket monitor is compatible with all sizes of video laryngoscopes (reusable and disposable).
In addition, Karl Storz presented his new IMAGE1 S Rubina endosurgical visualization system which combines state-of-the-art 4K resolution with enhanced fluorescence-guided imaging. Its unique dual 4K sensors and dual LED technology allow surgeons to seamlessly switch between white light and various fluorescence modes to meet different surgical needs, without the lag or incompatible frames that are common with alternative technologies. As IMAGE1 S is a modular system, existing 4K customers can upgrade to this technology at half the cost of competing technologies.
