During intubation it's very important to protect the top teeth and gums. A over-aggressive intubation may result in accidental trauma to the teeth.
Use the Intubate Mate when you orally intubate, insert an esophageal obturator airway or prior to rescue breathing using a BVM or pocket mask.
The Intubate Mate has special wedges to keep the jaw open during and after intubation. It will also accommodate a small LED light (optional accessory) to help illuminate the throat.
But the most important feature of the Intubate Mate is the extra protection it provides to the teeth during difficult oral intubations.
