NSN: 6515-01-515-0146, 6515-01-515-0151, and 651501-515-0161 Disposable Supraglottic Airway Designed for Superior Positive Pressure Ventilation as well as Spontaneous Breathing...
The KING LT-D airway device is a disposable supraglottic airway and is reported to be the safest and most reliable disposable supraglottic airway tool alternative for emergency ventilation when direct laryngoscopy is not feasible or mask ventilation is deemed insufficient. Created as an alternative to tracheal intubation, the KING LT-D is designed for positive pressure ventilation as well as for spontaneously breathing patients, thereby allowing maximum versatility as an airway management tool. This supraglottic airway features a shorter tube length and S-shape to minimize sore throats and trauma and make it easy to insert in just a few seconds, as well as insertion marks so you know when it has reached the proper depth. This device is features an anatomically shaped distal tip and cuff, which helps pass the airway behind the larynx and into the esophagus. The KING LT-D consistently achieves a ventilatory seal of 30 cm H2O or higher. It is easy to insert and results in minimal airway trauma. The pliable fabrication of the KING LT-D is engineered to withstand extreme environmental conditions, is 100% latex free, and is provided sterile for single patient use.

King Systems is one of the industrys leading manufacturers and distributors of disposal supraglottic airways. The King LT-D, a versatile airway management tool, is an alternative to tracheal intubation or mask ventilation. It is easy to insert and is strategically designed to minimize airway trauma. This sterile, singleuse supraglottic airway provides a patent airway for superior patient ventilation. As noted in the Manual of Emergency Airway Management by Dr. Ron Walls: Of the four supralaryngeal devices discussed in this section, the KING LT-D airway seems to have the most

promise as an emergency failed airway rescue device in the opinion of the author. Benefits of the KING LT-D Disposable Supraglottic Airways
