For years, we have watched clinicians struggle with traditional airways. Many have stopped utilizing them altogether. We at NuZone Medical, following American Heart Association (AHA) recommendations, felt it was time for a new airway. One you could actually work with!
We observed the current airways to be difficult to size correctly and insert; thus, making them uncomfortable for the patient. Plus, they do not allow for an easy airway clearance. In addition, if the patient’s Level of Consciousness (LOC) improves, the traditional airways stimulate a gag reflex which makes it necessary to remove the airway with a potential for reinsertion if a need arises.
The Dual-Air® Adjustable Oropharyngeal Airway provides solutions to many of the above mentioned situations. Please visit our website for an instructional video which explores all of the Dual-Air’s enhancements.
