Airways

When a patient’s airway is at risk for obstruction or becomes obstructed, an artificial airway is inserted to maintain airway patency. Some common devices used for this purpose are oropharyngeal airways, nasopharyngeal airways, endotracheal tubes, and tracheostomy tubes.

Oral airways are used to keep the upper airway patent when it is at risk for becoming obstructed by the tongue or by secretions.

Nasopharyngeal airways, sometimes called nasal trumpets, are also used to keep the upper airway patent.

Endotracheal tubes are used for patients undergoing a procedure that requires general anesthesia and/or mechanical ventilation. They are inserted either through the nose or the mouth past the epiglottis and vocal cords into the trachea and down to where the trachea bifurcates into the bronchi.

Tracheostomy tubes are used for long-term airway support. They are inserted through a small opening in the neck into the trachea.
