This Guedel Airway is an oropharyngeal airway (also known as an oral airway or OPA).
It is a medical device to be inserted into the mouth to maintain or open a patient’s airway, by preventing the tongue from covering the epiglottis, which could prevent the person from breathing. This can happen when a person becomes unconscious. The jaw muscles becomes relaxed then and allow the tongue to obstruct the airway.
