Patient Positioning is Paramount to Successful Intubation!
Dynamic Medical offers the AirPal RAMP™ Rapid Airway Management Positioner, a
leap forward in the evolution of air assisted medical devices. The RAMP combines
the AirPal lateral patient transfer and positioning device with a fully
adjustable surface to create proper patient positioning for direct laryngoscopy
The RAMP revolutionizes direct laryngoscopy to
make the process faster smoother and safer for patients and hospital staff
alike. The patented RAMP technology allows for the safer transfer and
positioning of a patient, facilitates proper airway alignment, improves the work
of breathing and lengthens the safe apnea period—even in the largest of
The RAMP allows for efficiencies in the OR that
have never been seen before.
Powered by its own air supply the RAMP quickly achieves ear to sternal notch
position, facilitating alignment of the airway axes and improving glottic
exposure. The RAMP also aids in maximizing upper airway patency, improving the
mechanics of ventilation and lengthening the apneic time period to critical
hypoxia in massive obesity.
Integrated with an AirPal Platform (Air-Assisted Lateral Patient Transfer
and Positioning Device).
Provides optimal positioning of the patient for direct laryngoscopy,
extubation, and central venous access.
Enhances the safe apnea period, BVM (Bag Valve Mask ) ventilation and
chest wall excursion.
Rapid in-service training.
Patients can be transferred onto OR table, positioned and “ramped” in
under one minute.
Patient positioning is easily mastered while
difficult airway techniques and equipment require a
learning curve and continued proficiency.
Positioning is a key component of airway management
in the operating room. By enhancing direct
laryngoscopy, the RAMP reduces the need for
alternative methods of intubation.
The RAMP is portable. Because airway adjuncts and
RSI are often unavailable, direct laryngoscopy and
positioning are often all there is.
Ear to Sternal Notch Positioning
When obesity or a difficult airway is encountered, head
elevation/neck flexion is required for proper axis alignment. With the RAMP, ear
to sternal notch position can be obtained in seconds to align these airway axes
and facilitate a "first pass" endotracheal intubation.
Oral Axis: Straight line drawn parallel to the hard palate.
Pharyngeal Axis: Line passing through the anterior portion of the
Laryngeal Axis: Straight line passing through the centers of the cricoid
cartilage and the base of the epiglottis.
