Nasopharyngeal airways are necessary when dealing with emergency tactical situations. This set including lube fits well in any IFAK.
After all these years you would think they would come up with a better packaging rather than the large paper/plastic combo.
Regardless works as intended.
The packaging could be a lot more compact, and that's the only grip. The NPA itself is fine. I like that RE lets you choose a size. Comes with lube glued to the outside of the pack.
The npa is used for basic airway management this a great product at a great price
The actual NPA works fine. However it's packaging is not great. The package is larger than is has to be, the lube is separate and harder to keep together.
My go to for NPA's. Works as indicated
Good NPA. It works well for trauma kits.
I've carried one of these daily for over a year, the packaging has held up in a cargo pocket, so I turned to Rescue Essentials to buy another one. Thanks!
Prior reviewer mentioned getting largest size and cut to reduce length. It should be noted that as size increases, not only length but diameter increases. Factor that into your purchase.
