The standard insertion technique (ST 0) for laryngeal mask airway insertion was compared to three alternative techniques in 120 patients. The alternative techniques included insertion using the standard approach, but with the cuff either semi-inflated (ST 0.5) or fully inflated (ST 1.0), and a non-standard approach using a back-to-front technique (like a Guedel airway) and with the cuff fully deflated (T 180). Successful insertion was judged by fibreoptic positioning (P < 0.02) and that… CONTINUE READING
