Aspir-Guard Throat Packs
Aspir-Guard prevents fluids and dental debris from being
accidentally aspirated during a routine dental procedure.
Numerous publications and textbooks state that the standard
of care requires the use of a material to block the oropharynx
from accidental aspiration of fluids that accumulate during
every dental procedure.
Aspir-Guard is a dehydrated PVA donut-shaped guard that
when rehydrated, has a soft gentle sponge-like feel. The rehydrated
Aspir-Guard is placed over the distal end of the ET tube prior to
intubation. The attached strings are used to fasten the Aspir-Guard
to the anaesthetic tie used to secure the ET tube to the patient.
After the patient is intubated, the Aspir-Guard is moved into place
to block the oropharynx from fluid aspiration. Once the procedure
is finished, the Aspir-Guard is gently removed together with the ET tube.
