  • Background: “Trapezius squeeze test” (TST) is a simple test to perform in which 1–2 inches of trapezius muscle is held and squeezed in full thickness and response is evaluated in the form of toe/body movement. We compared the effectiveness of the trapezius squeeze test (TST) with the Jaw thrust (JT) as clinical indicators for optimal anaesthesia depth for Proseal laryngeal mask airway (PLMA) insertion in spontaneously breathing children under sevoflurane anaesthesia. Materials and methods: 60… CONTINUE READING
