    Alright, this is a new one for me...
    Phokus Medical Group
    Medical Kits-
    Any idea on why they keep 550 Cord on their NPA's?

    It looks to be about 2 feet long and its packed inside their kit running through the NPA.

    To remove it.
    Attach paracord, and pull just like your starting an old snowblower.

    Exactly!

    God, my eyes are watering.
    Partly from laughing, and partly from imagining it........

    So when it goes through the fracture in the skull base you can retrieve it? Not that it does the patient much good but hey, saves you a few bucks on an NPA! :-D

    Seriously, how is it tied? Looped through or like a streamer off the fat end?

    so you can tie it around the person’s head after inserting the NPA tonkeep them from involuntarily pulling it out?

    Had a couple of visuals flash through my brain and spewed coffee from laughing too hard. Honestly can't imagine why they would do that.
