Nasopharyngeal Airway

A nasopharyngeal airway (NPA) is a medical device used to maintain an open airway in patients who are at risk of obstruction due to relaxed tongue, upper airway collapse, or trauma. Here's a breakdown of its features and usage:
1. Design: An NPA is typically made of soft, flexible material like silicone or latex rubber. It's shaped like a hollow tube with a flange or flared end on one side to prevent it from being inserted too far into the nostril.
2. Sizes: NPAs come in various sizes to accommodate different age groups and anatomies. Choosing the correct size is crucial to ensure effective airway management without causing discomfort or injury.
3. Insertion: Proper insertion technique is essential to prevent complications. The NPA is inserted through one nostril and advanced along the floor of the nasal passage until the flange rests against the nostril.
4. Indications:Patients with altered consciousness or decreased level of consciousness (e.g., due to anesthesia, head injury, or intoxication) who may have compromised airway reflexes.   - Patients with facial trauma or maxillofacial injuries where oral airway insertion is contraindicated.   - During nasotracheal intubation to facilitate passage of the endotracheal tube.
5. Contraindications:Presence of severe nasal trauma or obstruction.   - Patients with suspected basilar skull fractures.   - Those with coagulopathy or bleeding disorders, as insertion may cause nasal bleeding.
6. Maintenance: Once inserted, the NPA should be secured in place to prevent dislodgment. Regular monitoring of airway patency and adequate ventilation is essential.

7. Complications: Nasal mucosal injury: Improper insertion technique or use of incorrect size may cause trauma to the nasal mucosa, leading to bleeding or discomfort.   - Airway obstruction: In rare cases, NPAs can cause obstruction if they are inserted too far or if they kink or collapse.   - Discomfort and gag reflex: Some patients may experience discomfort or gag reflex, especially during insertion.
8. Removal: NPAs should be removed as soon as they are no longer needed to minimize the risk of complications. Removal should be done gently and slowly to prevent trauma to the nasal mucosa.
9. Training: Healthcare providers should receive proper training in the use and insertion of NPAs to ensure safe and effective airway management.

Nasopharyngeal Airway® (GS-2034)

Romsons Nasopharyngeal Airway (NPA) is a medical device designed to establish and maintain a patent airway in patients who are unable to maintain it themselves, particularly those with altered consciousness or compromised airway reflexes. NPAs are commonly used in emergency medical situations, intensive care units, and during certain medical procedures.


Design and Material:

Romsons NPAs are typically made of medical-grade soft and flexible materials such as silicone or polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The choice of material ensures patient comfort and flexibility, allowing easy insertion and positioning within the nasopharyngeal region.

Romsons NPAs are available in various sizes to accommodate different patient populations, ranging from infants to adults. The sizes are usually color-coded for quick identification, and healthcare professionals choose the appropriate size based on the patient's age and anatomy.



Soft and Flexible:Romsons NPAs are designed to be soft and pliable, facilitating easy insertion without causing trauma to the nasal passages or surrounding tissues.


Lumen Configuration:The airway typically features a hollow lumen that allows for the passage of air and ensures an unobstructed airflow, maintaining adequate oxygenation.


Flared Ends:The flared ends of the NPA prevent it from being inadvertently inserted too far into the nasopharynx, reducing the risk of trauma and making it more secure in place.


Murphy Eye:Some NPAs, including those by Romsons, may have a Murphy eye, a side hole that serves as an alternative pathway for airflow if the primary opening becomes blocked.



Maintaining Airway Patency:Romsons NPAs are used to prevent or relieve airway obstruction in patients with altered mental status, decreased level of consciousness, or compromised airway reflexes.


Facilitating Ventilation:NPAs are particularly useful when oral airway placement is not possible or not tolerated, such as in patients with a strong gag reflex or those at risk of oral trauma.


Emergency Situations:Romsons NPAs are commonly employed in emergency medical settings, including pre-hospital care and trauma situations, to quickly establish a clear airway.


Insertion Technique:

Patient Positioning:The patient is typically in a supine position with the neck extended.

Selection of Size:The appropriate size is selected based on the patient's age and anatomy.

Lubrication:The NPA is lubricated to ease insertion.

Insertion:The airway is gently inserted into the nostril with a slight twisting motion until resistance is felt, indicating contact with the nasopharynx.

Securing in Place:Once inserted, the NPA is secured in place by taping it to the patient's face or using a commercially available securing device.

Precautions and Complications:

Contraindications:NPAs are contraindicated in patients with severe head injury, facial trauma, or suspected basilar skull fracture due to the risk of exacerbating these conditions.

Nasal Bleeding:Care must be taken during insertion to minimize the risk of nasal bleeding.

Gag Reflex:In conscious patients, the insertion of NPAs may trigger the gag reflex, and proper sedation or anesthesia may be necessary.

Monitoring and Maintenance:

Regular Assessment:Healthcare providers must regularly assess the position and effectiveness of the NPA.

Securing in Place:The NPA should be securely taped or secured to prevent accidental dislodgment.
