Share Article

The Kotler Nasal Airway, a device allowing patients to breathe easier just after nasal and sinus surgery, has been added to the product line of Boston Medical Products.

Reltok Nasal Products proudly announces that Boston Medical Products, Inc., a leading international distributor of devices and products for the head and neck/ear, nose and throat specialty, has added the KOTLER NASAL AIRWAY™ to its diverse product line.

A Unique Safety Device

The KOTLER NASAL AIRWAY™ is a newly patented safety device secured by nasal surgeons onto the floor of the nasal passages, at the conclusion of any sinus and/or nasal surgery.The one-piece, soft silicone, dual-tube device assures access by the anesthesia specialist for clearing the airway in preparation for awakening the patient.

Formerly, the anesthesia specialist had access to clear the throat solely via the mouth which was challenging if the awakening patient were uncooperative. The nasal route avoids the perils of possible injury to the teeth and other mouth structures.

A Popular Patient-Pleaser

Patients have long expressed dissatisfaction over nasal blockage after surgery without any provision for clear breathing. Despite the surgical procedure’s success, the experience has heretofore suffered from bad press because of the clogged nasal passages. The “KNA” provides clear breathing through the nasal passages immediately after surgery and throughout the immediate post-operative period. The airway prevents the congestion, ear-clogging, dry throat and even claustrophobia.

Boston Medical Products, Inc., which has acquired the distribution rights to the Kotler Nasal Airway (KNA) was founded in 1980 by three physicians, including world-renowned Harvard surgeon William W. Montgomery, MD, as a way to make Dr. Montgomery's original innovations widely available to fellow physicians. Boston Medical Products, Inc., is part of the Bess Group, based in Germany, a multinational manufacturer of products for the specialties of head & neck surgery, pulmonology and gastroenterology.

Reltok Nasal Products, LLC manufactures the KNA airway in Pacoima, CA, for distribution in the U.S. and abroad. Its incubator arm aids MD-inventors and developers with patentable devices and products for nasal and sinus procedures. Reltok Nasal Products was founded by veteran nasal surgeons, Robert Kotler, MD, FACS, a UCLA faculty member, and Keith Wahl, MD, FACS of La Jolla, CA, retired faculty at UC San Diego.
