The nurse is preparing to insert an oropharyngeal airway in an unresponsive client and should do which to ensure the airway is inserted correctly?

▸ Using a tongue depressor, push the tongue to the side of the mouth when inserting the airway.

▸ Begin the procedure by inserting the airway upside down and then rotating it to the correct position.

▸ Position the airway in a downward position and then rotate it upward as it passes by the back of the throat.

▸ Refrain from taping the bottom of the airway to prevent esophageal injury when the client swallows.
