Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.
Cancers or tumors of the LARYNX or any of its parts: the GLOTTIS; EPIGLOTTIS; LARYNGEAL CARTILAGES; LARYNGEAL MUSCLES; and VOCAL CORDS.
A form of bronchial disorder with three distinct components: airway hyper-responsiveness (RESPIRATORY HYPERSENSITIVITY), airway INFLAMMATION, and intermittent AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION. It is characterized by spasmodic contraction of airway smooth muscle, WHEEZING, and dyspnea (DYSPNEA, PAROXYSMAL).
Ultrasonography, Doppler, Duplex
Ultrasonography applying the Doppler effect combined with real-time imaging. The real-time image is created by rapid movement of the ultrasound beam. A powerful advantage of this technique is the ability to estimate the velocity of flow from the Doppler shift frequency.
Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve
Branches of the vagus (tenth cranial) nerve. The recurrent laryngeal nerves originate more caudally than the superior laryngeal nerves and follow different paths on the right and left sides. They carry efferents to all muscles of the larynx except the cricothyroid and carry sensory and autonomic fibers to the laryngeal, pharyngeal, tracheal, and cardiac regions.
BACKGROUND: Most of the data on combining pressure-controlled ventilation (PCV) with positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) come from studies with an endotracheal tube (ETT) whereas data on utilizati...
BACKGROUND: Morbidly obese patients are at risk of hypoxemia at the time of induction of anesthesia. The aim of this study was to assess the possible increase in the safe apnea time with the use of Pr...
PURPOSE: The ProSealâ„˘ laryngeal mask airway (PLMAâ„˘) may be difficult to insert because of its large soft cuff, even when using a dedicated introducer tool. The purpose of this study was to investi...
BACKGROUND: Removal of the laryngeal mask airway in the post-anesthesia care unit could potentially contribute to a faster turnover from one operation to the next. The aim of this study was, therefore...
BACKGROUND: A previous study using a 180Â° rotation to insert the ProSealâ„˘ laryngeal mask airway (LMA ProSeal) in children did not show improvement over the standard technique. We used a 90Â° rotati...
The ProSeal laryngeal mask airway (PLMA) is a new laryngeal mask device with a modified cuff to improve the seal and a drain tube to prevent aspiration and gastric insufflation. The manufa...
The ProSeal laryngeal mask airway is a relatively new airway device with a modified cuff to increase the seal and a drain tube to provide a channel for regurgitated fluid, prevention of ga...
The i-gel is a new supra glottic airway device with a non inflatable cuff and an oesophageal vent. The aim of this study is to compare this device to the LMA ProSeal. The study is approved...
The Air-QÂ® intubating laryngeal airway (Air-QÂ® ILA) is an extraglottic device specifically engineered for use both as a stand-alone laryngeal mask airway (LMA) and as a rescue device or...
The LMA Supreme is a new extraglottic airway device which brings together features of the LMA ProSeal, Fastrach and Unique. We test the hypothesis that ease of insertion, oropharyngeal lea...
