Airway management is a critical skill that may be essential in the battlefield. The aim of this study was to determine if combat life savers and medics with no or limited clinical experience could pro...
In neonatal resuscitation, laryngeal mask airway (LMA) is recommended when both face mask ventilation and endotracheal intubation fail. However, experience of LMA among obstetricians, nurses and midwi...
Flexible reinforced laryngeal mask airway (FLMA®) has gained popularity in thyroid surgery, but air leak and displacement are still concerns.
This study will determine the safety of laryngeal mask airway (LMA) compared with endotracheal tube (ETT) in patients undergoing general anesthesia for dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) surgery.
Objective This study was performed to observe the occurrence of corrected QT (QTc) interval prolongation during anesthetic induction for laryngeal mask airway insertion and the effects of cisatracuriu...
Comparison of two different supraglottic airway devices i.e., the ProSeal Laryngeal Mask Airway (PLMA) and Ambu AuraGain, a third generation laryngeal mask Airway.
The current study retrospectively assesses laryngeal mask airway use during pediatric adenoidectomies in terms of patient safety, comfort, complications and surgeon satisfaction levels.
In this randomized controlled trial, we aimed to compare the efficacy of video-stylet guided laryngeal mask airway real time insertion technique with the standard recommended index finger-...
The aim of the current study is to compare the use of laryngeal mask airway (LMA) and endotracheal tube (ETT) in pediatric adenotonsillectomy. The primary objective is to assess the incid...
The purpose of this study is to compare the use of a laryngeal mask airway (LMA) vs. face-mask ventilation (FMV) during first-line neonatal resuscitation in Mulago Hospital, Kampala, Ugand...
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.
Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
Endoscopic surgery of the pleural cavity performed with visualization via video transmission.
Congenital anomalous dilitation of the laryngeal saccule that may extend internally into the airway or externally through the thyrohyoid membrane.
Cancers or tumors of the LARYNX or any of its parts: the GLOTTIS; EPIGLOTTIS; LARYNGEAL CARTILAGES; LARYNGEAL MUSCLES; and VOCAL CORDS.
