Laryngeal mask airway cuff pressure and position during anaesthesia lasting one to two hours.

Abstract

The cuff of the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) is highly permeable to nitrous oxide (N2O), and cuff pressure increases during N2O/O2 anaesthesia. The extent of these changes and their effect on LMA position have previously only been investigated for short procedures. The current study was designed to investigate the effects of nitrous oxide-oxygen (N2O/O2… (More)
