Air way:
 
 
Procedure for insertion of oropharyngeal airway
 
 
 
Don gloves (if available).
 
Clear the patient's airway, apply suction if necessary.
 
Estimate the correct size of the airway by placing it against the patient's face andmeasuring it from the angle of the jaw to the incisors (Fig 1). The correct size is one thatequates to the vertical distance between the incisors and the angle of the jaw (Nolan etal, 2005).
 
If possible, lubricate the airway before insertion (practically, in the emergency situation,this is rarely done).
 
Open the patient's mouth, clear the airway, using suction if necessary, and insert theairway in the inverted position (Fig 2) (the curved part of the airway will help press thetongue down and prevent it from being pushed posteriorly).
 
As it passes over the soft palate, rotate the airway through 180° (Fig 3).
 
Following insertion, confirm that the airway is in the correct position - the patient'sairway should be improved and the flattened reinforced section should be positioned inbetween the patient's teeth or gums if there are no teeth (Resuscitation Council (UK),2000).
 
Closely monitor the patency and position of the airway; it can become blocked by thetongue or epiglottis and can become wedged into the vallecula (Marsh et al, 1991).Vomit, secretions and blood can also compromise its patency.
