Intublade is a battlefield-inspired video laryngoscope equipped with a patent-pending lens cleaning nozzle, designed for visualization of difficult and compromised airways. Current intubation devices lack the ability to clear common contaminants obstructing the user's view without removing the device, cleaning the lens, and reinserting causing further trauma and increased time without oxygen to the patient. Intublade solves this problem. The device was developed by a former Army medic, and now practicing ER Physician who routinely experiences intubation failures with laryngoscopes lacking our technology. Supported by two US Marines with backgrounds in business development and medical device innovation, we have a final prototype in hand and are ready to proceed with manufacturing and further research and development. Intublade was recently featured in the American Journal of Emergency Medicine (article attached) demonstrating 50% faster intubation times than leading competitors in an IR...

This device is a Class I medical device and is 510k exempt from premarket notification through the FDA.
