Technique and equipment allow for a tracheotomy to be performed on a patient, quickly and efficiently without necessarily requiring the skills of a surgeon. The tracheotomy could be performed by a bystander or other individual immediately upon determining that the Heimlich maneuver has been unsuccessful or is not feasible. It would be valuable to have such a device where choking and blockages are likely to be encountered, for example within restaurants, commercial airplanes, and emergency response vehicles.
In an emergency situation it is a life-saving device that eliminates the need for surgery and provides an immediate airway.
