Need a new keychain gadget?

Lifestat Emergency Airway Device

"This innovative device facilitates a lifesaving method (cricothyroid notch) in emergencies when other efforts have failed. LifeStat is small and light enough to fit on your key ring, in your pocket, or in your emergency kit."

Despite the slighty wrong ad above, this can be used to emergently ventilate a patient when the airway has completely obstructed. But, you also run the risk of puncturing the inominate artey, filling the lungs with blood. That's not a good thing.

Conversation starter for the slightly twisted, though.

Want one?
