By offering air-Q Masked Laryngeal Airways in addition to Flex-Tip endotracheal tubes and IntuBrite laryngoscopes, Salter Labs becomes the leading source for airway management products that deliver performance and contribute to patient safety.

Salter Labs – a global leader in respiratory and anesthesia innovation driven by collaboration with clinicians – announced today exclusive global distribution of the air-Q® family of Masked Laryngeal Airways from Cookgas. air-Q airways were designed by Dr. Daniel Cook to improve the safety of airway management. Their unique, anatomic design opens airways for superior ventilation and enables endotracheal intubation through the air-Q, even in difficult clinical situations.

“Anesthesiologists repeatedly told us that the air-Q is the best-performing supraglottic airway and we are proud to be the exclusive distributor of this innovative product. Combined with our Flex-Tip endotracheal tubes and IntuBrite dual-LED conventional and video laryngoscopes, Salter now offers a full range of innovative airway management products. This expansion reflects our commitment to offering differentiated products that improve patient safety during airway management,” said Greg Pritchard, CEO of Salter Labs.

“I chose Salter Labs to distribute my air-Q masked laryngeal airways because they have the demonstrated clinical knowledge, global commercial reach, and focus on service needed to commercialize innovative products,” said Dr. Daniel Cook, founder and CEO of Cookgas, LLC. “I’m confident in Salter’s commitment to this business and they will eventually acquire Cookgas after certain milestones are met.”

With the addition of air-Q, the Salter Team is confident in offering the best airway management product range in healthcare and a next step in improving patient safety.
