Developed and designed following eight years of clinical research by American anaesthesiologist Dr Daniel Cook, the disposable air-Q is a superior passive airway device available in new infant sizes and provides:
- Ease of placement
- Better seal in everyday use
- Improved intubation success
It can facilitate the passing of any standard endotracheal tube and can also remain in place during the procedure. A disposable removable stylet is available separately to aid the removal of the air-Q while leaving the ET Tube in place.
