Description

Mouth gags are devices used to hold the mouth open. In medicine, they were originally used for procedures and surgery in the mouth and throat, or for opening the mouths of patients who could not do so themselves. During anesthesia the muscles in the back of the mouth, throat and jaw relax, sometimes causing the airway to the lungs to become obstructed. Also, patients under light chloroform or ether anesthesia sometimes clenched their mouths closed as a normal reflex. For these reasons, mouth gags were sometimes used to keep the mouth and airway open and accessible during anesthesia. Their use for this purpose waned after better anesthetics, oral airways and endotracheal tubes came into practice. However, mouth gags are still used today for procedures and surgeries involving the mouth and throat.
