The laryngeal tube is one of the leading lifesavers in the medical industry saving thousands of lives every year from cardiac arrest in hospitals. The Portex Microlaryngeal Tube is a simple, disposable airway management device. It allows superior air ventilation as it controls the passage of gastric contents.
The laryngeal tube has three main components. The first is the curved airway tube which matches the anatomy of the oropharynx. It opens into an inflatable mask which ensures the epiglottis does not enter the airway.
The second is the oval-shaped inflatable mask with a round and broad proximal end. The last part is the mask inflation line attached to the proximal end of the tube. This part has a syringe port, pilot balloon and a metallic valve.
USL Medical has a high-quality range of laryngeal tubes.
