By using the latest manufacturing technology we have produced the first major breakthrough in Guedel airway design for thirty years.
We have combined two materials with very different physical characteristics into one moulding, resulting in the elimination of the separate bite block found in all conventional Guedel airway designs.
Loose or detached bite blocks constitute a real threat to patient safety and have been the subject of several hazard notices in the past. Our One-piece design overcomes all of the associated risks.
As well as improved safety, the One-piece also incorporates a softer tip reducing the risk of trauma to the patient.
Our one-piece Guedel range is also fully compliant to the colour coding guidance outlined in ISO 5364:2016. The changes detailed below were implemented at the end of October 2021, and so the new colours will start to enter market circulation in the coming months.
• ISO Size 3.5: Changed from Pink to Light Green
• ISO Size 6.5: Changed from White to Brown
• ISO Size 7.0: Changed from Yellow to White
• ISO Size 9.0: Changed from Orange to Yellow
We also offer the One-piece as a sterile option, providing you with a further choice.
