Robertshaw & Seward Blades


Robertshaw blade for infants and children is gently curved over the distal third and is designed to lift the epiglottis indirectly in the manner of the MacIntosh blade. The blade section permits binocular vision thus allowing better judgement of depth and consequently less risk of trauma.

Seward originally produced as an infant blade for use in asphyxia neonatorum, this pattern is now available in two sizes extending its usefulness to older children.
