Tongue Depressors & Laryngeal Mirrors for Ear, Nose & Throat Treatment
Tongue depressors and laryngeal mirrors are medical instruments that are quite often used in general medicine, ear-nose-throat treatment (ENT) and dentistry for examining the mouth and throat regions.
Tongue depressors provide a better view of the oral cavity
Tongue depressors can be made of wood, plastic or metal. Tongue depressors serve to push the patient's tongue down during an examination and, thus provide a better view of the oral cavity. Metal tongue depressors have an opening, which allows for detection of pathalogical changes that would have otherwise been covered by a full depressor. While wooden and plastic tongue depressors are typically non-sterile and designed for one, single use (often by general practitioners), autoclavable tongue depressors are primarily used in ENT surgeries. In our online shop, we provide you with wooden depressors, made from non-splintering wood, that can also be used as smear spatulas. Of course, you can also purchase tongue depressors made from medical grade steel.
Laryngeal mirrors for examining the oral cavity, teeth, gums, throat & larynx
Laryngeal mirrors are composed of a long handle and a small mirror and are usually used with a diagnostic light or head lamp. The mirror permits the observation of the buccal cavity, teeth, gums, throat and larynx. Laryngeal mirrors are available in various sizes, according to requirements. The thicker handle makes manipulation easier. In addition to traditional laryngeal mirrors, the mirrors are also available as attachments for lighting systems, which make examinations easier thanks to the direct illumination of the examination field. The laryngeal mirror makes it possible to indirectly observe the larynx. In our shop, you will further find laryngoscopes for patient intubation.
