Description

The NPA is a flexible endotracheal tube that is designed to open a channel between the nostril and the nasopharynx.

The purpose of a NPA is to bypass upper airway obstruction at the level of the nose, nasopharynx or base of the tongue.

The NPA primarily acts as a 'splint' which maintains patency of the airway, or keeps the tongue from falling back on the posterior pharyngeal wall and occluding the airway, therefore preventing airway obstruction.

There are few things worst than losing your patient airway while fixing something else. All trauma patients should have one in place as soon as possible.

Our courses include a full demonstration of insertion and students are encouraged to insert/receive a NPA to be fully confortable with this device.
