Supraglottic Airway Offers Positive Pressure Ventilation

The KING LTS-D is a new supraglottic airway that offers superior positive pressure ventilation with gastric access. The system allows the passage of an 18F suction catheter through a gastric access lumen that leads to the stomach and has an anatomically shaped distal tip and cuff.
Easy to insert, the KING LTS-D has centimeter depth markings and results in minimal airway trauma. It is also 100 percent latex-free and is provided sterile for single-patient use.
The system is ideal for a wide range of clinical applications and unexpected procedures using positive pressure ventilation. Its supraglottic airways consistently achieve ventilatory pressures above 30cm H2O and were created as alternatives to tracheal intubation or mask ventilation.
