Why VL every time

Turning the corner for Patients

A video laryngoscope maximizes your likelihood of first-pass success. Each subsequent intubation attempt increases the risk for patient trauma. Don’t let that happen by making a suboptimal attempt.

Get it right the first time. Every time.

The benefits of video laryngoscopy (VL)

A better view.

Read the American Society of Anesthesiologists Practice Guidelines for Management of the Difficult Airway for a more detailed discussion.

Less force.

Using less force can mean a lower risk of trauma for patients.

Faster.

VL is faster than fiberoptic intubation, improving patient safety and satisfaction and saving costly OR time. Read the Difficult Airway Society’s Guidelines for Management of Unanticipated Difficult Intubation in Adults for additional information.

Assists with both anticipated and unanticipated difficult airway situations.

The entire team can see the screen, enabling each team member to anticipate and respond immediately.

Intubation can be recorded to create a “digital airway record”.

Improved training opportunities.

Why CoPilot VL®?

Portable.

Mounts to any IV pole and is small enough to easily go with you where you need it; ER, ICU, Cath lab.

Affordable.

In an editorial piece in the British Journal of Anaesthesia, cost is presented as the primary reason video laryngoscopes are not used for ALL tracheal intubations. CoPilot VL is the affordable option for hospitals, ORs and emergency rooms. The cost of a CoPilot VL® disposable is equivalent to the cost of reprocessing a standard blade.

Easy to use.

Along with a great view of the cords, you can choose your way of intubation, stylet or bougie.

Patented Bougie Port.

Solves the “getting around the corner” problem. Turn the corner with CoPilot VL®.

Bougie Port

Turn the corner. The first time. Every time.

Have you ever encountered an intubation with a great view of the vocal cords but you just can’t get the tube to go around the corner? CoPilot VL® and its patented Bougie Port can increase first attempt success rates for tracheal intubation, thereby improving patient safety and satisfaction, and minimizing provider risk.

Video laryngoscopy shouldn’t be a backup plan; it should be the standard of care for all intubation patients. Get it right the first time, every time. Turn the corner with CoPilot VL®.

FAQ’s

What is the CoPilot VL®?

The CoPilot VL® is a video laryngoscope that combines the best intubating technology with the best price. Our innovative Bougie Port was designed to solve the number one problem clinicians experience with Video Laryngoscopes; that is, being able to see the vocal cords but not able to direct the ETT through the vocal cords. The Bougie Port will deliver a standard bougie directly to where the camera is looking. You can then thread your ETT over the bougie in the standard fashion.

How is the CoPilot VL® different from other Video Laryngoscopes?

The CoPilot VL® is a Video Laryngoscope that you can actually afford. Its simple design lowers cost without lowering quality, and utilizes convenient features like a single-use disposable sheath so there are no dirty blades to high level disinfect in between uses. Our unique Bougie Port and hands free eject mechanism are designed to make the CoPilot VL® the easiest to use VL on the market.

Is this a GlideScope®?

Ehhh, No.
Aside from having a video camera and a display, there is little else in common. The CoPilot VL™ is an affordable Video Laryngoscope that is compact enough to fit in the back of your scrub pants pocket, has a cool feature called the Bougie Port and a hands free eject mechanism for removing the contaminated disposable sheath. Most importantly, the CoPilot VL™ is orange.

What is a Bougie Port?

A Bougie Port is a special channel built into the side of the disposable sheath that directs the tip of a bougie towards the image that the camera is viewing. Our Bougie Port was designed to make video intubation even faster and easier by guiding the ETT straight to the glottis. It may seem like an extra step, but once you have some practice with it, you will find it to be a very quick method to intubate. You do not have to intubate using the Bougie Port if you don’t want to. If not, you should intubate with a stylet. Our included reusable, rigid stylet is your best choice but you may also use any stylet you wish.

How is video laryngoscopy (VL) different from direct laryngoscopy (DL)?

CoPilot VL® uses video technology to provide a superior view of the glottic opening versus direct laryngoscopy, which requires you to hoist and displace airway tissues so that you can hopefully obtain line of sight with the glottic opening. This is not necessary with VL. VL works with the anatomy by allowing you to look around the corner to find your intended target. The neck may be kept neutral and the scope is placed midline. VL requires a different skill set from DL, but with just a little practice, you will become proficient and will intubate faster and safer than ever before.

Is the CoPilot VL® returnable?

Well, we don’t know why you would want to do that but if you really don’t like it, we will gladly take it back. In fact, we are so confident that you will love our VL system, we offer an unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee. If for any reason you are unsatisfied, you may return your system for a full refund.

Is there an Owner's Manual for the CoPilot VL®?

Yes. You can find a link to view the Instructions for Use if you log into your user account or you can find it here.

Does CoPilot VL® have a warranty?

Absolutely. Magaw includes a 1-year LIMITED WARRANTY against manufacturer defects.

How do I clean the CoPilot VL®?

The CoPilot VL® was designed so that only the disposable sheath is intended to come into contact with the patient so that high level cleaning is not required in between uses. For complete cleaning instructions, please refer to the Instructions for Use.

What is the battery life of the CoPilot VL®?

The CoPilot VL®display case houses a high tech Lithium Polymer battery that will provide over 2 hours of continuous use on a single charge. Lithium Polymer batteries are known for their long life span and their ability to hold a charge for an extended period of time in between uses. If the CoPilot VL® becomes discharged, it can be used while it is being recharged with the included power supply.

Should I leave the CoPilot VL® plugged into the charger?

No. Your scope has a top quality lithium polymer rechargeable battery. You will experience the longest battery life and performance if you use the scope on battery power and only recharge when the battery runs low. Never try to recharge your CoPilot VL® with a charger other than that supplied with the device.
