Apparatus and Method for Airway Patency and Head Immobilization

A jaw-thrust device includes a base with an extension arm disposed on each side of a patient's head mounted on the base. A mandible rest is mounted on each extension arm such that the mandible rest may be deployed proximate to a patient's mandible. A chin pad and at least one connector connects the chin strap to at least one of the base or extension arm; whereby jaw thrusting pressure on the mandible rests causes rotational force on the chin straps such that the patient's mouth opens without substantially tilting the patient's head. The device maintains an open airway unattended.
