Guedel Airways are used to prevent the tongue from obstructing the airway during resuscitation.
The Guedel Airways are suitable for use on unconscious patients. With conscious or semi-conscious patients there is a high possibility that the device would stimulate a patient`s gag reflex. This could cause the patient to vomit and potentially lead to an obstructed airway.
Guedel Airways have a bite block in their design to prevent biting of tongue and airway occlusion. Guedel Airways come in different sizes and are colour coded for easy identification of sizes.
