Troop Elevation Pillow
– Reusable Pillow Addition
The Troop Elevation Pillow is designed and intended to facilitate airway management for obese and large-framed patients.
Designed and developed by a practising anaesthesiologist, the Troop Elevation Pillow addresses the inherent problem of “stacking blankets.”
The pillow quickly achieves the “head-elevated laryngoscopy position, (H.E.L.P.).” This position is recommended for airway management of obese patients and is ideal for intra-op and post-op care.
