Safety Alert Regarding Nasal Pharyngeal Airway

We have been made aware of several instances in which the NPA pictured below has dislocated subsequent to placement, creating airway complications.  We are reviewing with our hospital partners to see if this item is stocked in the region.  Please examine your agency supplies and make sure your providers are aware of the problem and are alert for displacement of any NPA.
