Sigma KEE - NasopharyngealAirway

appearance as argument number 1

(documentation NasopharyngealAirway EnglishLanguage "In medicine, a nasopharyngeal airway, also known as an NPA, nasal trumpet (because of its flared end), or nose hose, is a type of airway adjunct, a tube that is designed to be inserted through the nasal passage down into the posterior pharynx to secure an open airway. When a patient becomes Jnconscious, the Muscles in the Jaw commonly relax and can allow the Tongue to slide back and obstruct the Airway. This makes airway management necessary, and an NPA is one of the available tools. The purpose of the flared end is to prevent the device from becoming lost inside the patient's nose.
