Abstract: front page image
(EN)A device and a method for creating and/or maintaining an obstruction free upper respiratory passages. The device is configured to fit under the chin of a subject adjacent to the subject's neck at an external location corresponding approximately with the subject's internal soft tissue associated with the neck's anterior triangle. The device is capable of exerting negative pressure on the surface of a subject's neck, displacing the soft tissue forward and enlarging the airway.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un dispositif et sur un procédé pour créer et/ou maintenir des passages respiratoires supérieurs exempts d'obstruction. Le dispositif est configuré pour s'ajuster sous le menton d'un sujet adjacent au cou du sujet à un emplacement externe correspondant approximativement au tissu mou interne du sujet associé au triangle antérieur du cou. Le dispositif est capable d'exercer une pression négative sur la surface du cou du sujet, déplaçant le tissu mou vers l'avant et agrandissant la voie respiratoire.
