Abstract:

Establishing a patent airway continues to be a priority whether performing basic or advanced combat trauma life support. Although many airway devices may be used to this purpose, upper airway clearance first necessitates removal of vomitus, blood or other secretions. Suction units on the market were identified and evaluated for potential far forward use in the Special Operations environment.
