The Guedel Airway is a Oropharyngeal Tube used to prop open the upper airways. Due to it's form, the correctly used Guedel Airway prevents that the tongue of a patient can drop back and therefore block the airway. It does not offer protection from Aspiration. The use of a suction catheter is however possible. Furthermore, the Guedel Airway can be used for tracheal tube fixation. For this use, the Guedel Airway also functions as bite block to prevent an occlusion of the tracheal tube caused by the patient’s teeth.
