Life/form® Advanced Airway Larry Airway Management Trainer features tongue swelling and laryngospasm in addition to all the features on the standard models. Students will now be presented with additional challenges they may have to face in the real world. This airway management trainer simulates a nonanesthetized patient to allow for practicing intubation, ventilation, and suction techniques. Realistic anatomy and authentic landmarks include teeth, tongue, oral and nasal pharynx, larynx, epiglottis, arytenoids, false cords, true vocal cords, trachea, lungs, esophagus, and stomach. The trainer allows for practice on oral, digital, and nasal intubation, as well as E.T., E.O.A., P.T.L., L.M.A., E.G.T.A., Combitube®, and KING System insertion.
When pressure is applied to the cricoid cartilage it will change the position of the trachea and close the esophagus, allowing realistic practice of the Sellick maneuver. With its slightly anterior position, swelling tongue, and vocal cords, the Advanced Airway Larry is a great trainer for introductory as well as advanced training. Suction techniques and proper cuff inflation may also be practiced and evaluated.
