Use of New Supraglottic Airway Devices in Severely Obese Patients: A Feasibility Study

2014-08-27 03:13:39 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether two new airway devices used during anesthesia called iGEL™ and KING-LTS-DTM work well and are safe in obese patients. They both work well in thin patients, but have not been tested in obese patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

The historic designation for scrofula (TUBERCULOSIS, LYMPH NODE). The disease is so called from the belief that it could be healed by the touch of a king. This term is used only for historical articles using the name "king's evil", and is to be differentiated from scrofula as lymph node tuberculosis in modern clinical medicine. (From Webster, 3d ed)
