The purpose of this study is to determine whether the leak pressure of the recently introduced laryngeal mask airway, Ambu AuraGain performs superior to the established laryngeal mask LMA Supreme in surgical patients undergoing general anesthesia. This leak pressure is the pressure at which a gas leaks around the airway, which is a key marker of efficacy and safety of its use; a higher leak pressure suggests a better seal between the artificial airway and patient's airway.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)

The study is designed to compare the performance of the Ambu AuraGain Laryngeal Mask Airway and LMA Supreme in normal airway patients.
In a observational study we investigated the second-generation laryngeal masks LMA Supreme and Ambu AuraGain.
The aim of this randomized study is conducted is to evaluate the performance and safety of air-Q intubating laryngeal airway as primary airway device in various short surgical procedure in...
The aim of the study is to compare the performance of two supraglottic devices, the new Ambu AuraGain and the LMA Supreme, in sixty female patients undergoing gynaecologic laparoscopy in t...
The supraglottic airway device(SAD), as an alternative to the endotracheal tube is inserted into the oral cavity and seals the upper esophagus and the surrounding tissue, effectively secur...
Airway management in severely obese patients remains a challenging issue for anaesthetists and may lead to life-threatening situations. Supraglottic airway devices, such as the i-gel™ or the AuraGai...
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...
The Ambu® Aura Gain™ is a new second-generation supraglottic airway device that-because of a wider curvature and a wide airway tube-allows fibreoptic intubation. The purpose of this study was to as...
The laryngeal adductor reflex (LAR) is an airway protective response triggered by sensory laryngeal receptors. It is unknown whether different glottic and supraglottic subsites vary in their reflex el...

Cancers or tumors of the LARYNX or any of its parts: the GLOTTIS; EPIGLOTTIS; LARYNGEAL CARTILAGES; LARYNGEAL MUSCLES; and VOCAL CORDS.
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.
Branches of the VAGUS NERVE. The superior laryngeal nerves originate near the nodose ganglion and separate into external branches, which supply motor fibers to the cricothyroid muscles, and internal branches, which carry sensory fibers. The RECURRENT LARYNGEAL NERVE originates more caudally and carries efferents to all muscles of the larynx except the cricothyroid. The laryngeal nerves and their various branches also carry sensory and autonomic fibers to the laryngeal, pharyngeal, tracheal, and cardiac regions.
Abnormal accumulation of fluid in tissues of any part of the LARYNX, commonly associated with laryngeal injuries and allergic reactions.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
