Timesco Callisto single use laryngoscopes at forefront of preventing cross contamination and spread of disease

AIDS, Hepatitis C, Sepsis, MERS, with the proliferation of contagious diseases across the world, cross contamination between patients has become a major issue. Timesco single use laryngoscopes Callisto are leading the way in preventing the spread of microorganisms, infections, spores and prions.

In guidelines published in the association of anaesthetists of Great Britain magazine, “Anaesthesia”, it was recommended that all laryngoscopes blades and handles should be autoclaved and the use of single use devices encouraged. However, autoclaving does not guarantee the total elimination of prions on laryngoscopes.

Timesco’s Callisto single use laryngoscopes offer ready to use convenience and cost savings compared to reusable laryngoscopes: Guaranteed control of cross contamination; no reprocessing or autoclaving costs; clinically clean, single use pre-packed; will not bend / deform in use; can be used with fibre reusable handles: Optima, Sirius, Optima XLED and single use handles Callisto S and Callisto LED.

The Callisto system is latex free, non-toxic and can be disposed in standard hospital waste. Timesco products are ISO, CE, FDA, SFDA, etc. worldwide approved. Timesco Callisto Laryngoscopes are the premier choice for cross contamination prevention. l For more information, visit:

A fresh look at pediatric environments

The approach to pediatric medicine is markedly different to adult medical treatment.

Since parents are the real consumers in choosing a pediatric healthcare provider and parent satisfaction equals a successful practice, modern pediatric practices are designed to appeal to both parents and children.
