OUR NEW LOWER JAW-THRUST (LJT) ORAL AIRWAYS CONTROL THE TONGUE AND INCREASE THE OROPHARYNGEAL OPENING BY 15%
Oral (oropharyngeal) airways are used every day during CPR, anesthesia, and on semi and unconscious patient’s and it is estimated that over 350 million are used every year around the world. But they continue to be an important overlooked device that needs a drastic overhaul. That’s why we developed the LJT line of oral airways!
|The two-leading oral (oropharyngeal) airways were introduced over 80 and 50 years ago respectively, but the simple fact is that medical science has taken leaps and bounds since that time but, unfortunately, with what we know today regarding anatomical physiology, they are an old “hold over” from the past and they do not adequately fulfill all of the requirements to carry out the task to maintain the airway in unconscious / semiconscious patients.|
