Lubo, Non-Invasive Airway Management & Neck Free Immobilization
Any first responder, paramedic or non-paramedic, learns in the Basic Life Support course to perform the Jaw-thrust maneuver using both hands.
On the one hand, this is a difficult technique that requires training in order to be performed successfully, and still may risk the patient’s cervical spine if done manually without preliminary immobilization.
On the other hand, the common cervical collars may compromise the patient’s airway by obstructing both the professional medical personnel from performing intubation and the Basic Life Support first responders from manually performing a Jaw-thrust maneuver.
Lubo secures patent airway while immobilizing the spine without causing damage to the patient’s neck.
Lubo also enables performing intubation, if needed, while maintaining cervical spine fixation.
