The intention of this study is to compare the performance of the single-use I-gel laryngeal mask with the classic laryngeal mask in 50 patients with a BMI>25 during elective surgery. Primary outcome is the leak pressure. Secondary outcomes include ease and duration of insertion.
Inclusion criteria of this randomized cross-over study are: BMI > 25, elective surgery in supine position, age>18 years, ASA I-II; Exclusion criteria are: difficult airway, pregnancy, history of reflux or gastrointestinal disorders, abdominal or thoracic surgery; In this cross-over trial both airway devices are inserted in the same patient, the order of insertion is randomized. Patient receive monitoring with blood pressure, ECG and pulse oxymetry during operation. Anaesthesia is induced intravenously using fentanyl (0.001 mg/kg) and propofol (3-5 mg/kg). The I-gel laryngeal mask is inserted with a gastric tube. The classic laryngeal mask was cuffed after insertion with a cuff pressure of 60 cmH2O. The first device is removed 5 minutes after insertion and replaced by the second device. Ease of insertion is graded as very easy=1, easy=2, difficult=3 and very difficult=4. Leak pressure is measured by two tests: In the first test the spill valve is closed at a fresh gas flow of 6l/min and the minimum airway pressure at which gas leaked around the airway device is recorded by listening for an audible leak. In the second test leakage is measured during pressure controlled ventilation. Therefore we administer a fresh gas flow of 3l/min, FiO2 of 50%, inspiration to expiration ratio of 1:2 and a frequency of breathing of 12. Leakage can be measured by the respirator. We record inspiration pressure, mean pressure, plateau pressure, tidal volume and peep at which the first measurable leakage occurred.
For statistical analysis we will use t-tests with a power of 80% and a p < 0.05.

Comparison of two different supraglottic airway devices i.e., the ProSeal Laryngeal Mask Airway (PLMA) and Ambu AuraGain, a third generation laryngeal mask Airway.
Overinflation of laryngeal mask airway cuff increase side effect like hoarseness, vocal cord paralysis, sorethroat. The investigators will study correlation between laryngeal mask airway c...
The current study retrospectively assesses laryngeal mask airway use during pediatric adenoidectomies in terms of patient safety, comfort, complications and surgeon satisfaction levels.
Till date, the tracheal tube was considered as the gold standard for providing a safe glottic seal, especially for laparoscopic procedures under general anaesthesia.The disadvantages of tr...
The choice of the size of the laryngeal mask (i-gel) is based on the weight. Even following the weight recommendations, it is quite common to choose a mask that is too big or too small, wh...
Flexible reinforced laryngeal mask airway (FLMA®) has gained popularity in thyroid surgery, but air leak and displacement are still concerns.
To evaluate the ability to assess laryngeal function and to diagnose unilateral laryngeal paralysis (uLP) via airway endoscopy and carbon dioxide (CO) stimulation.
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.
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...
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.
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.
