The Benefits of Video Laryngoscopy (VL)
A better view
Read the American Society of Anesthesiologists Practice Guidelines for Management of the Difficult Airway for a more detailed discussion.
Using less force can mean a lower risk of trauma for patients.
VL is faster than fiberoptic intubation, improving patient safety and satisfaction and saving costly OR time. Read the Difficult Airway Society’s Guidelines for Management of Unanticipated Difficult Intubation in Adults for additional information.

Why CoPilot VL+?
Mounts to any IV pole and is small enough to easily go with you where you need it; ER, ICU, Cath lab.
In an editorial piece in the British Journal of Anaesthesia, cost is presented as the primary reason video laryngoscopes are not used for ALL tracheal intubations. CoPilot VL+ is the affordable option for hospitals, ORs and emergency rooms. The cost of a CoPilot VL+® disposable is equivalent to the cost of reprocessing a standard blade.
Easy to Use
Along with a great view of the cords, you can choose your way of intubation, stylet or bougie.
Patented Bougie Part
Solves the “getting around the corner” problem. Turn the corner with CoPilot VL+®.
Bougie Port Turn the corner. The first time. Every time.
Have you ever encountered an intubation with a great view of the vocal cords but you just can’t get the tube to go around the corner? CoPilot VL+® and its patented Bougie Port can increase first attempt success rates for tracheal intubation, thereby improving patient safety and satisfaction, and minimizing provider risk.
Video laryngoscopy shouldn’t be a backup plan; it should be the standard of care for all intubation patients. Get it right the first time, every time. Turn the corner with CoPilot VL+®.
