The investigators aim to compare the airway seal pressure( oropharyngeal leak pressure) of the Self Pressurized Airway Device with Blocker® with the ProsealTM Laryngeal Mask Airway (P-LMA...
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 ...
Baska mask air way(BM) in comparative study with Proseal laryngeal mask airway (PLMA) regarding performance of Baska mask improves the safety and efficacy of airway management for in patie...
The Laryngeal Mask Airway is a supraglottic airway device that has been used in anesthesia for decades. Now the third generation (LMA Supreme) is commonly used. Recently the LMA Protector ...
This investigation is designed to evaluate the performance as well as the patients overall acceptance of the seal.
Flexible reinforced laryngeal mask airway (FLMA®) has gained popularity in thyroid surgery, but air leak and displacement are still concerns.
A major challenge with the treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is adherence to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. Mask tolerability is an important determinant of adherence, h...
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...
The role of supraglottic devices in airway management in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) remains controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of intubat...
Upper airway obstruction during anesthesia is the leading cause of complications during sedation, intubation, and emergence. Devices to support oxygenation and ventilation are costly, require capital ...
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.
A technique of respiratory therapy, in either spontaneously breathing or mechanically ventilated patients, in which airway pressure is maintained above atmospheric pressure throughout the respiratory cycle by pressurization of the ventilatory circuit.

Application of positive pressure to the inspiratory phase when the patient has an artificial airway in place and is connected to a ventilator.
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).
Devices for continuously measuring and displaying the arterial blood pressure.
