AbstractAn artificial airway device to facilitate lung ventilation in an unconscious patient comprises a rigid airway tube (10), which is curved to follow the airway of the patient, opening into the interior space or lumen of a mask portion (12) whose periphery (14) is adapted to seal around the inlet (36) to the larynx (38), and a rigid handle (9) mounted at the outer end of the airway tube (10) and curved away from the mouth of the airway tube (10).
