Emergency airway device.

The LifeStat[R] emergency airway device facilitates a lifesaving method (cricothyroid notch) in emergencies when other efforts have failed. This device is small and lightweight enough to fit on a key ring, in a pocket, or in an emergency kit. The simple configuration allows relative ease of insertion and operation, even when conditions are not optimal. Once inserted and a breathing tube is established, spontaneous or assisted breathing is possible. The tube is adaptable to a hand held or automatic respirator. The LifeStat may remain in position during subsequent attempts at oral intubation. The device is available in aluminum or polished aluminum brass.
