Abstract

See full text

A bite block for use with an airway conduit comprises an elongated arcuate body having a U-shaped channel defined therein and at least one end flange at a proximal end of the arcuate body, wherein the U-shaped channel corresponds in shape to a predetermined shape of a tubular conduit of an airway such as a laryngeal mask airway and to a human oral-pharyngeal cavity. The U-shaped channel is open to the lingual surface and can be inserted over a tubular conduit of a properly inserted laryngeal mask airway.
