Positive pressure ventilation during fibreoptic intubation: comparison of the laryngeal mask airway, intubating laryngeal mask and endoscopy mask techniques.

BACKGROUND The efficacy of delivery of mechanical ventilation through different airway devices during fibreoptic intubation is not known. METHODS We compared the laryngeal mask airway (LMA), intubating laryngeal mask (ILM) and endoscopy mask for positive pressure ventilation (PPV) during fibreoptic intubation. In 80 adult paralysed patients, fibreoptic… CONTINUE READING
