GERATI Single Use MAGILL Forceps Magill Intubation forceps are long angled forceps designed to grasp objects lodged in pharynx. Their angled design enable use without obscuring clinician’s view.
MAGILL FORCEPS SIZES:
- Available in 15cm, 17cm, 20cm and 25cm sizes/
- MAGILL FORCEPS PEDIATRIC
- aid passage of an endotracheal tube into the larynx (e.g. nasal intubation)
- remove foreign bodies from the airway/ pharynx. MAGILL FORCEPS FOREIGN BODY
- place pharyngeal packs (e.g. bleeding)
- aid gastric tube passage into the oesophagus
FOREIGN BODY REMOVAL
Accidental foreign body (FB) ingestion is a common clinical problem. FB ingestion is highly prevalent among the pediatric age group. In adults, it occurs most frequently in alcoholics, prisoners, and those with mental retardation. Radiological localization of ingested FB using advanced techniques is mandatory. Esophagoscopy is the main method for the removal of FBs. Rigid esophagoscopy has been mainly associated with a 5 and 10% risk of perforation during FB removal. The ideal methods are all of the procedures which have lower perforation rate to quickly remove the FBs. Foley catheter extraction and the minimally invasive Magill forceps devices were described for this goal to remove FBs which located in the upper esophagus. The present study aimed to report our experience retrieving ingested FBs from the upper esophagus in children using Magill forceps under general anesthesia.
- Twin-bladed tong-like forceps
- handles for gripping by the user
- rounded ends for grasping
- oblique angle between handles and blades to enable prevent obscuration of the view of the airway during use
- Reusable or disposable (usually stainless steel)
- infant, child and adult sizes
- polished and dull finishes
- open and closed end design to aid gripping of different materials
- used to grasp objects under direct vision
- best used with a laryngoscope to produce an optimal view of the larynx and displace soft tissues forward to create space for manipulation
- Local trauma
- breakage of forceps
- unable to grasp small objects (e.g. coin) if inadvertently using open tipped forceps
