One-Piece Guedel softer tip and color change
Our One-piece Guedel airways combine two materials with very different physical characteristics into one molding, 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 range of Guedel oropharyngeal airways is now fully compliant to the color-coding guidance outlined in ISO 5364:2016.
To comply, we changed the colors of four sizes of our One-Piece Guedel Airway range as confirmed below.
- 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
