Nasopharyngeal Airway

These are high quality Nasopharyngeal airways ideal for paramedics, event medics and medical professionals

Intubation is the medical practice whereby a series of tubes are used to maintain a clear airway for a patient or for administering and removing fluids to somebody who is injured.

To offer the best quality care to the patients the medical staff supervising their treatment must have access to the very best equipment. We are confident that the equipment we supply covers every eventuality and can guarantee it in terms of quality.

Sanitation is a priority when it comes to medical solutions, with that in mind we only stock and supply tested and approved equipment that meets health and safety guidelines.

Amongst the products that we can supply in relation to airway management are: Catheter Mounts, Laryngoscopes, Nasopharyngeal Airways, Intubation Stylets and a range of cuffed and uncuffed tubes.

 The nasopharyngeal airway (NPA) is a simple airway adjunct used by various healthcare professionals. It has some advantages over the oropharyngeal airway (OPA) but despite this it appears to be used less frequently. This may be due to fears over intracranial placement in cases of possible basal skull fracture. This fear, promulgated by training, is based solely on two single case reports and relative risk needs to be put into clinical context.

Widely taught methods of sizing NPAs are based upon the width of the patient’s nostril or little finger, MRI data demonstrate that these methods are inaccurate. Ideal NPA length measured at nasal endoscopy correlates with subject height, this is independent of subject sex, and is a far more accurate determinant and easy to use in the clinical setting. Average height females require a Portex size 6 NPA and average height males a size 7 Portex NPA. This knowledge provides a rapid method of NPA selection.
