- These forceps are for inserting endotracheal tubes (catheters for the trachea) to provide oxygen and inhaled gases to the lungs and protect the lungs from contamination. They can also be used to remove foreign bodies from the trachea during surgery. This style of forceps was first used by the anaesthetist Dr Ivan W. Magill in 1920 and are still widely used today by ENT surgeons with no real change to their design.
The forceps are constructed with a bend to clear the field of vision, and loop-shaped serrated jaws to optimize clamping and minimise local injury. They are easy and secure to handle, reducing injury to the end of the catheter and the likeihood of small pieces of the fragile material being left in the trachea. They are made of stainless steel, so can be sterilised and reused.
