The laryngeal mask airway (LMA) has been shown to be useful in airway maintenance during resuscitation. The intubating laryngeal mask (ILM) is a modified LMA permitting both ventilation and rapid endotracheal intubation. We aimed to compare the LMA and the ILM with regard to ease of insertion and successful ventilation by inexperienced personnel. We have used anaesthetized, apnoeic, non-paralysed patients as a model to simulate resuscitation. Following standardized training, non-anaesthetic… CONTINUE READING
