AuraGain Laryngeal Mask is the only anatomically curved SGA with integrated gastric access and intubation capabilities, taking patient safety and airway management efficiency to a new level.
The Ambu AuraGain is intended for use as an alternative to a face mask for achieving and maintaining control of the airway during routine and emergency anaesthetic procedures.
The AuraGain may be used where unexpected difficulties arise in connection with airway management. The device is intended for use as a conduit for an endotracheal tube in cannot intubate – cannot ventilate situations, as well as situations where is it necessary to place an endotracheal tube after insertion of the AuraGain.
The device is not intended as a replacement of an endotracheal tube, and is best suited for use in surgical procedures where tracheal intubation is not deemed necessary.
The AuraGain may also be used to establish a clear airway during resuscitation in profoundly unconscious patients with absent glossopharyngeal and laryngeal reflexes who may need artificial ventilation.
During use the gastric channel of AuraGain may be used as a conduit for passing a tube into the gastrointestinal system for removal of air and gastric fluids.
