Intubation Forceps after Magill
The Magill-Forceps are medical forceps which, in contrast to dressing forceps, are angled. The jaws are roughened and widened. That's why the Magill-Forceps are especially suited for use in the mouth/throat region. They are often used in combination with laryngoscopy for the removal of foreign matter from the upper respiratory tract, for positioning of the tube in nasal intubation, as well as for the insertion of stomach probes into the esophagus.
Like other medical instruments, the Magill-Forceps is made of metal and therefore autoclavable. The inventor was the Irish anesthesiologist Ivan Whiteside Magill, who also designed a special endotracheal tube.
Magill-Forceps are made in various sizes. For adults the total length is 24 cm, for children 20 cm and for infants 16 cm.
