Penlon Premier Conventional Laryngoscope Handles are available in Standard, Penlight and Stubby configurations. The Penlight handle gives improved balance with smaller blades and the Stubby handle is designed to facilitate difficult intubation on a short neck or a barrel-chested patient.
The bulb is located in the blade and all handles and blades are interchangeable with other ‘Hook-on’ standards compliant components.
¹Penlon Laryngoscopes are guaranteed throughout their normal useful life against mechanical failure due to defects in design, materials or workmanship. The guarantee does not apply to lamps, batteries or plastic laryngoscopes.
Fibrelight guides are guaranteed against total light failure within a period of five years. However note that after many sterilisations the light output of the fibre bundle may decrease.
