MAIRWAY - An Improved Oral Airway for Bag-mask Ventilation, Awake Fibreoptic Intubation and Endoscopy
Dr. McKay created an oral airway that opens the airway with minimal stimulation of gag, choke, or cough and is easily maintained by simply pulling the jaw anatomically upward, and does not require the complex set of hand manoeuvres used by experienced anesthesiologists.
The result is the MAIRWAY!
The Mairway solves the problem of holding jaw thrust for the novice. After opening the mouth, insert the Mairway, engaging the upper incisors in the upper notch, then thrust the jaw as far as it can easily go and close the bottom teeth in the appropriate bottom notch.
