Airway Positioning Devices

  • Vital Signs Disposa-View™

    Designed for the prone positioned patient, Disposa-View is the only completely disposable head positioning device that allows you to visually check the patient’s eyes and the ET tube connection.

    • A latex-free single-use head positioning device for prone procedures
    • The soft, comfortable foam reduces the pressure around the patient’s eyes and face while supporting the head and neck
    • The mirror provides the clinician with a clear view of the face, eyes and endotracheal tube for easy monitoring
    • The slotted design allows for the endotracheal tube to be positioned on either side of the patient’s face
  • Vital Signs Pi’s Pillow™

    Pi’s Pillow creates the ideal patient position for intubation.

    Comfort

    Pi’s Pillow is designed as a two-piece system, consisting of a removable cushion (on top) and a base (on bottom) that is very comfortable for the patient prior to induction.

    Positioning

    The design of the pillow calls for the slope side of the pillow to be beneath the patient’s shoulders and upper back, that is, the upper edge of the base should be under the atlanto-occipital joint.

    As soon as the patient loses consciousness the top cushion is removed or it is moved down according to the desired degree of head and neck extension. This stabilises the patient’s head and places the neck in the sniffing position to facilitate intubation, ventilation or insertion of a laryngeal mask.

    Material

    The pillow is latex-free and made of a high grade polyurethane foam. Each pillow comes vacuum packed for ease of storage.
