SalterLabs air-Q® Intubating Laryngeal Mask

Product Information

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.
