Laryngeal Mask Airway Supreme vs. the Spritztube tracheal cannula in anaesthetised adult patients: A randomised controlled trial
CONCLUSION The Spritztube was as effective as the LMA-S in maintaining the airway with all patients being successfully ventilated without difficulty. The success rate of achieving a patent airway was comparable between the groups, with a similar occurrence of complications. TRIAL REGISTRATION NCT03443219.
Conclusionsinstrumental measurements highlight that SLMA offers the advantage of less resistance to the airflow, allowing to keep lower oropharyngeal leak pressure during mechanical ventilation. Despite the differences reported, we observed only a few minor complications in both groups.
Conclusion: I-gel may be a reliable and cost-effective alternative to LMA Fastrach™ for fibreoptic-guided tracheal intubation.
Conclusion: Both PLMA and AQB show similar efficacy in maintaining ventilation and oxygenation, during laparoscopic surgery. However, proper positioning and functioning of the blocker tube of AQB is a limiting factor, and needs further evaluation.
The obstetric airway is a significant cause of maternal morbidity and mortality. Endotracheal intubation is considered the standard of care but the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) has gained acceptance as a rescue...
We presented with a hypothetical that the dislocated LMA may cause carotid sinus syndrome (CSS). Interventions: The patient's heart rate (HR) gradually rosed up as soon as the LMA adjusted back to the normal position. Outcomes: The patient was comfortable in the post anesthesia care unit (PACU) and had no adverse sequelae. Lessons: The position of LMA Supreme should be confirmed throughout the surgery especially for the ones who has changed the position and the head was covered by surgical drapes.
Conclusion: The LMA Protector was an effective ventilator device associated with fewer intraoperative hemodynamic stress responses and improved the quality of early recovery after laparoscopic cholecystectomy.
[Statement of the Austrian Society for Anesthesiology, Resuscitation and Intensive Care Medicine (ÖGARI) on the use of laryngeal tubes by ambulancemen and paramedics]. Anaesthesist. 2019 May 21;: Authors: Trimmel H, Halmich M, Paal P Abstract Due to an increasing number of severe complications reported during the prehospital application of laryngeal tubes, the Austrian Society for Anesthesiology, Resuscitation and Intensive Care Medicine (ÖGARI) is prompted to formulate a respective statement. With regard to the current training situation and the applicable laws, ÖGARI recommends t...
DiscussionThis trial will assess the possible benefits or disadvantages of perioperative LMA use in elderly patients compared with ETI regarding the occurrence of PPCs and clinical prognosis. We expect that this trial will also add to the current understanding of PPCs in geriatric populations and contribute to the international recommendations of geriatric surgery management.Trial registrationClinicalTrials.gov,NCT02240901.
