The broad flat shape makes it easier to restrict the neonate and premature infant's tongue movement. This blade combines the Z section (outward flange) of the MacIntosh design with a straight blade. Desirable for pediatric use.
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)
