I like to watch reruns of Emergency! whenever I can, which are shown daily on the RTV (Retro Television) network at 3pm (check local listings). On the show, they frequently talk about an "esophageal airway". For example, Johnny or Roy will contact Rampart and the doc there will instruct the squad crew to start or place an esophageal airway. What the heck is an esophageal airway? The term implies it goes into the esophagus but if you put an airway into the esophagus, wouldn't you just end up inflating the stomach?
