The Kotler Nasal AirwayÔ, inserted after a nose operation, allows patients to breathe immediately after surgery and throughout the first 1- to 5-day postoperative period, with or without nasal packing.

The device features two large-bore airways that are easily inserted, without sutures, in 10 seconds or less. The device automatically “nests” on the nasal floor and is compatible with all nasal packing. It is made of soft, nonstick, latex-free, medical-grade silicone.

The Kotler Nasal Airway can be removed painlessly in the physician’s office. An irrigation syringe and tip are provided for home care.
