Lower Jaw-Thrusting (LJT ) Oropharyngeal (Oral) Airways
PROVEN TO MAINTAIN THE OROPHARYNGEAL OPENING AND CONTROL THE TONGUE
It is estimated that over 350 million oral (oropharyngeal) airways are used every year around the world, during anesthesia, on semi / unconscious patient’s and during CPR. But would it surprise you to know that current airways have been clinically proven to be deficient in opening and maintaining the oropharynx airway. That’s why we developed LJT Oral Airways!
The two-leading oral airways were introduced over 80 and 65 years ago respectively, but the simple fact is that medical science has taken leaps and bounds since that time but, unfortunately, with what we know today regarding anatomical physiology, they are an old “hold over” from the past and they do not adequately fulfill all of the requirements to maintain the airway in semiconscious / unconscious patients.
