Description
Laryngoscope, which consists of (a) a main hollow cylindrical metal handle with a round open
base; near the bottom is a hollow cylindrical piece of metal pointing upwards at a 45 deg. angle
and above that are three finger hold pieces sticking out slightly; the top of the handle is round
and open and has a small hollow cylindrical piece coming out from the side; the bottom has two
notches cut into it which allows the removal and re-attachment of (b) the base, which is cylindrical
and hollow with metal at the bottom and plastic at the top; the base is designed to hold batteries
and has two knobs which correspond with the notches in (a) and allow it to be fixed on; the
hollow cylindrical piece near the bottom of the handle is threaded at its open end to allow the attachment
of (c) a round, threaded cap, which fits into and closes the cylindrical piece; at the top
of the handle there is a round plastic and metal knob which slides up and down in a section cut
into the metal; at the top of this section is a hole into which fits (d) the light, which consists
of a cyulindrical metal piece, bent twice to form part of a square, and a metal and glass light
bulb at the end; the overall look of the light is a long straight piece with a three-sided square
shape (one side open) at the end; the long piece with the light bulb fits into (e) a laryngoscope
blade; this blade is made of a long piece of semi-circular metal which is open at the top; the base
of the blade is solid and cylindrical and fits into the round hole at the top of the handle; the
right side of the blade has a hollow cylindrical tube into which the light fits; a blade cover (f)
fits over and closes 2/3 of the length of the blade leaving the tip as a semi-circular shape; the
blade cover has slots cut into both sides which allow it to slip onto and attach to the blade;
the blade is fixed to the main handle by using (g) a circular knob on a threaded piece of cylindrical
metal that fits into the cylindrical piece coming out from the top at the side; there is another
blade (h) with cover (i) which are the same design as (e,f), but are slightly larger
