The O2Vent airway channel has been incorporated into each device enabling unobstructed air to flow through the O2Vent to the back of the throat, bypassing common sites of obstruction such as the nose, tongue, and soft palate. It does this by allowing:
- Air to be drawn into the O2Vent Optima if there is a nasal or soft palate blockage
- Air to pass through to the back of the throat
- The O2Vent Optima to advance and stabilize the lower jaw moving the tongue forward and opening the airway.
