Ease of Use of the Baska Airway Device. Think of it for any rescue oxygenation scenarios. Like Rapid Sequence Airway with RSI medication. Like Failed intubation with DL or VL. Can be the Primary Airway device in patients in cardiac arrest and/or respiratory arrest. Gastric Diversion or Salad (Suction Assisted Laryngeal Airway Decontamination). Think it. Practice it. Rehearse it in failed airway plans when intubating in simulation ideally. If not, Rehearse mentally for airway encounter be it the pre hospital setting, ED, ICU or operating room. Believe me. This product has so much potential. Game-Changer.
