Developed in conjunction with the late Dr. Robert A. Miller of San Antonio, Texas, it is the most popular of the straight blade types. The size of the flange is reduced to minimize trauma and the curve at the beak or tip is extended to improve lifting of the epiglottis. These improvements facilitate greater exposure of the larynx in difficult patients. All illumination is on the left side of blade.
The blade is made from 303/304 surgical stainless steel. GreenLine® blades and handles are fully compliant with ISO standard 7376-3 and interchange perfectly with companies conforming to the Green System. (i.e. Anesthesia Associates, AMS, Heine, Propper, Rusch and Welch Allyn)
