Difficult Airway Manikins
Our difficult airway trainers help medical professionals including anaesthesiologists prepare for difficulty in airway management including airway assessment, airway obstruction, difficult and failed intubation, supraglottic airway device insertion and cricothyroidotomy.
TruCorp difficult airway training manikins have inflatable tongues to simulate edema, as well as difficult airway parts for advanced difficult airway management practice.
DIFFICULT AIRWAY MANIKINS
Replaceable standard and difficult airway parts are sold separately and interchange easily for efficient training.
For most of our difficult airway trainers, you can change the airway on your own. For the AirSim, AirSim Bronchi, and TruMan Trauma X models you’ll need to ship us the manikin so we can change the airway.
AIRSIM DIFFICULT AIRWAY OPTIONS
TruCorp has designed and developed a range of difficult airways in collaboration with Dr. Rich Levitan. Our difficult airway options demonstrate clinical variance in airway management training.
Difficult Airway 1 features enlarged tongue edema with swollen posterior cartilages and elongated epiglottis.
Difficult Airway 2 features enlarged tongue edema with an elongated notched epiglottis.
All TruCorp AirSim X airways are constructed using CT DICOM data from real patients for visual and anatomical accuracy. Standard and difficult AirSim® X airways are certified for over 20,000 intubation cycles and come with a 5-year warranty.

The TruCorp AirSim® Pierre Robin X manikin highlights difficult airway management techniques for infants with Pierre Robin Sequence (PRS) featuring an airway with various congenital defects. We also carry a full line of pediatric airway trainers for realistic child and infant airway management training.
CAUSES OF DIFFICULT TRACHEAL INTUBATION
Middle-aged or elderly adult patients are more likely to present difficult endotracheal intubation due to changes brought on by aging including:
- Decreased thyromental distance
- Cervical joint rigidity
- Smaller interincisor gap
As the elderly population continues to increase, difficult airway management training becomes increasingly important. TruCorp difficult airway trainers are the most realistic and durable intubation manikins available for advanced medical procedure training.
Additional causes of difficult tracheal intubation include:
- Craniofacial abnormalities
- Dentition such as protrusive maxillary incisors
Difficult airway management can include both difficult tracheal intubation (DTI) and difficult mask ventilation (DMV). TruCorp difficult airway trainers provide crucial training for anesthesiologists, doctors, advanced practice nurses and EMTs. Difficult airway manikins can also be used for difficult laryngoscopy training and nasal intubation practice.
