Jan 05, 2019 · The laryngeal mask airway (LMA) has been used routinely during general anaesthesia replacing endotracheal intubation, or has served as a bridge between endotracheal intubation and the facemask in emergent airway management [1, 2].The blind insertion technique described by Brain is most widely used , but insertion of the LMA is not always smooth and anaesthetic gas leakage and gastric A comparison of the laryngeal mask airway with facemask The critical care nurses were able to place the laryngeal mask airway and achieve successful ventilation in 82% of children compared to 70% using the facemask and oropharyngeal airway, although Use of the laryngeal mask airway in rabbitsplacement and The laryngeal mask airway (LMA) has been used in various animal species anesthetized for the purpose of device evaluation, but the device has not been evaluated in rabbits during surgery. The
Aug 01, 2007 · The median time to first successful breath using the laryngeal mask airway was 39 s compared to 25 s using the facemask (p < 0.001). In this group of nurses, we did not show a difference in ventilation via a laryngeal mask airway or facemask, although facemask ventilation was COMPARISON OF LARYNGEAL MASK AIRWAY USE WITH Dec 14, 2012 · The laryngeal mask is an airway device that creates a seal around the larynx with an inflatable cuff. 5 The laryngeal mask airway (LMA) is used in human patients for routine surgical procedures and as an alternative to endotracheal intubation in cases involving difficult intubation. 4,6,28 The LMA was found 25 to be more effective than a A Prospective Evaluation of Clinical Tests for Placement THE laryngeal mask airway (LMA) was introduced into clinical anesthesia practice by Brain more than a decade ago. In airway management, the LMA serves as a bridge between tracheal intubation and the facemask.

Oct 26, 2017 · Laryngeal tube (LT) application by rescue personnel as an alternate airway during the early stages of out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is still subject of debate. We evaluated ease of handling and efficacy of ventilation administered by emergency medical technicians (EMTs) using LT and bag valve mask (BVM) during cardiopulmonary resuscitation of patients with OHCA.Anesthetic facemasks Anesthesia Airway Management Included in this section are variations of the standard anesthetic facemask described below. These include the Patil Syracuse mask and the endoscopy facemask.. FEATURES. These facemasks have a cuff that allows for a complete seal to be achieved between the mask and the patient's face. Anesthetic facemasks can therefore be used to deliver non invasive ventilation (NIV).Laryngeal Mask Airway Is Associated with an Increased To reduce the incidence of respiratory adverse events, the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) has been suggested as an alternative to tracheal intubation in children with a recent URI.14,15 The potential reduction in laryngeal stimulation by the LMA might explain the fewer adverse respiratory events reported,1417 but there are no studies systematically comparing the risk profiles of LMA use in
General anesthesia was conducted using supraglotic devices either laryngeal mask airway (LMA group) or nasopharyngeal airway (NPA group) using open circuit (modified Ayres T piece), Basic monitoring including ECG, pulse oximetry and non invasive blood pressure applied to all patients, through the whole procedure and in the PACU.The laryngeal mask airwaypotential applications in The ability to maintain a patent airway and provide effective positive pressure ventilation (PPV) is the main objective of neonatal resuscitation and all anaesthesiological procedures. 1 6 This is currently achieved with the use of a face mask or an endotracheal tube. Both of these devices have major limitations from a strictly anatomical point of view and require adequate operator skills.Airway Complications during and after General Anesthesia Objective Flexible laryngeal mask airways (FLMAs) have been widely used in thyroidectomy as well as cleft palate, nasal, upper chest, head and neck oncoplastic surgeries. This systematic review aims to compare the incidence of airway complications that occur during and after general anesthesia when using the FLMA and endotracheal intubation (ETT).
After marked airway obstruction with laryngeal mask (LM) placement in neonate piglets, anatomical observations in cadavers revealed a large epiglottis advancing markedly over the soft palate. CT imaging in vivo confirmed that the LM pushes the epiglottis caudally thereby obstructing the larynx. As a new approach, in 20 piglets a flexible PVC bougie placed under laryngoscopy was used to guide Airway Complications during and after General Anesthesia Objective Flexible laryngeal mask airways (FLMAs) have been widely used in thyroidectomy as well as cleft palate, nasal, upper chest, head and neck oncoplastic surgeries. This systematic review aims to compare the incidence of airway complications that occur during and after general anesthesia when using the FLMA and endotracheal intubation (ETT).The Laryngeal Mask AirwayPotential Applications in The laryngeal mask airway is a completely new concept in airway management and has the potential to provide a third airway option for the neonate. The device sits in the hypopharynx at the interface between the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts, where it forms a circumferential low pressure seal around the glottis. This article provides an overview of the laryngeal mask airway and
facemask versus laryngeal mask airway in rabbits during isoflurane anesthesia Rabbits have become very popular pets and their anesthesia still can be a challenge. This brandnew study was performed to determine whether a laryngeal mask airway (LMA) provides a better airway than a facemask in spontaneously breathing anesthetized rabbits, and to Airway obstruction due to a laryngeal polyp following Laryngeal mask airway (LMA) insertion contributes to airway protection in patients with a laryngeal tumor around the glottis. There has been no report of LMA insertion itself exacerbating airway obstruction in such patients. A 62 year old male underwent elective surgical resection of a large laryngeal polyp. The polyp was attached to the right vocal fold and synchronously swung inward into the A comparison between the Supreme laryngeal mask airway A comparison between the Supreme laryngeal mask airway and the laryngeal tube suction during spontaneous ventilationA randomized prospective study Mostafa Somri 1, Luis Gaitini 2, Ibrahim Matter 3, Naser Hawash 1, Octavio Falcucci 4, Gustavo Garcia Fornari 5,
