***The Advanced Base Airway is a replacement airway for the torso trainer. As such, it does not include the modular mounting units (jaw, nasal muzzle, teeth). The Advanced Base Airway is easily coupled to the mounting units.***
The Advanced Base Airway prioritizes simulation of human tissue’s characteristic delicacy and recreation of the anatomical structures and geometry typical of human anatomy. The realistic tongue establishes the technique needed to sweep the tongue when inserting the laryngoscope. The vocal cords, vallecula, and functioning epiglottis provide key landmarks and visual confirmation of successful intubation. Asymmetrical nasal passages demonstrate the nuances of nasal intubation. The relative asymmetry of the bronchial bifurcation has been recreated so that a right mainstem intubation occurs if imperfect technique is used.
***An Intermediate Base Airway Module composed of higher durometer material is also available, but the prioritization of durability has the tradeoff of being slightly less realistic. The Intermediate Base Airway Module is recommended for less experienced practitioners of intubation skills.***
