A tongue depressor is a surgical instrument made of stainless steel (sometimes called spatula) is a tool used in medical practice to depress the tongue to allow for examination of the mouth and throat.

A tongue depressor may be inserted over the tongue to facilitate insertion of an oral airway and prevent down folding of the tongue, which could impair venous and lymphatic drainage, causing tongue swelling and airway obstruction.
