Nasal Pharyngeal Airways (NPA) are a great way of keeping the airways open in casualties who are not conscious. When they wake up, the casualty's first move is usually to remove the NPA.
This is ok, because now that the casualty is awake, they can then protect their own airway and no longer have a need for the NPA.
