Save time: Stop hunting around for pillows or blanket rolls and end time-consuming positioning of patients and failed intubation attempts. Just place the patient’s head on the pillow and perfect Sniff is achieved. Simple alignment of the oropharyngeal, laryngeal, and tracheal axes reduces chance of trauma to adjacent tissues.
During mask anesthesia (conscious sedation) the airway becomes obstructed due to the relaxation of the muscular structures of the oropharynx. This can require the patient’s jaw to be held. The Supine Sniff Positioner enables the airway to remain open. In the event of respiratory failure, the respiratory therapist, utilizing the support pillow, can ventilate the patient without any difficulty until a skilled intubator arrives.
