The practice

U.S. Army Spc. Fabien Juarez, left, a Joint Tactic Army Ground Station engagement control shift leader, and Staff Sgt. Michael Lilley, right, a JTAGS engagement control team leader, put a nasopharyngeal airway tube into first-aid dummy heads during a JTAGS exercise at Misawa Air Base, Japan, June 20, 2018. The tube acts as a temporary route to re-establish or maintain breathing. If there is no airway, then there is no breathing, which means the body isn't receiving oxygen in lungs, heart, brain or the rest of the body. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Xiomara M.

Up the nostril

U.S. Army Spc. Fabien Juarez, a Joint Tactic Army Ground Station engagement control shift leader, inserts a nasopharyngeal airway tube into a first-aid dummy head during a JTAGS exercise at Misawa Air Base, Japan, June 20, 2018. The tubes placed at the bottom of the dummy head are representative of the pharynx and trachea portion of the throat connected to the lungs, mouth and nose, acting as a breathing tube. During the training, the 35th Medical Group went over airway management, assessing a casualty to reestablish breathing, bleeding control, combat tourniquet application, patient transportation and eye injury treatment.
