The aim of the study is to compare anaesthesia (for back surgery) using endotracheal intubation (patients anaesthized in the supine position)with anaesthesia using a laryngeal mask (anaesthesia induced and the laryngeal mask placed with the patient in the prone position on the operation table) as regards advantages, adverse effects and time spent. The anaesthesia in the 2 groups of patients is identical (propofol, remifentanil, rocuronium). Two groups of 70 pt. each are included in the stud. The inclusion criterias are patients 18-70 yrs., ASA group 1-2, normal airways, patients scheduled for back surgery with an estimated duration of less than 2 hours.
Adverse effects (related to the placement on the operation table i.e. pain in the arms or shoulders, pain in the throat, blood in the sputum, irritation in the eyes etc.) and time spent with all the procedures (anaesthesia, placement of the airway, surgery and emergence from the anaesthesia are registered. The hypothesis is that the method using the laryngeal mask is faster and with fewer adverse effects.

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...
General anaesthesia demands securing patient's airway either with endotracheal tube or laryngeal mask (LMA); however, both carry the disadvantage of postoperative soar throat. Nasopharynge...

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.
Flexible reinforced laryngeal mask airway (FLMA®) has gained popularity in thyroid surgery, but air leak and displacement are still concerns.
Percutaneous dilatational tracheostomy (PDT) is one of the most common bedside surgical procedures performed in critically ill adults, on intensive care units (ICUs), who require long-term ventilation...
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...
To determine the endotracheal tube cuff pressure produced with two inflation techniques, in two brands of endotracheal tube in cats. To determine the inspiratory pressure which produces an audible lea...
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.
Removal of an endotracheal tube from the patient.
Procedure in which an anesthetic such as a gas or mixture of gases is inhaled through a tube into the lungs.
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.
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...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
