Supraglottic airway devices (SADs) are devices that keep the upper airway clear for unobstructed ventilation. Laryngeal masks are a type of supraglottic airway which keep a patient’s airway open during the state of unconsciousness and when the patient is under anesthesia. When the laryngeal mask is correctly placed, it sits above the glottis in the hypopharynx region.
Supraglottic Airway Devices (SADs) comprise a vast group of tools designed to provide a means for ventilation, oxygenation and administration of anaesthetic gases during situations of respiratory arrest or in a patient who is submitted to a surgical procedure under general anaesthesia.The laryngeal mask airway (LMA) is an acceptable alternative to mask anesthesia in the operating room. It is often used for short procedures when endotracheal intubation is not necessary.
How to insert a Laryngeal Mask Airway: ◦ First, Deflate The Cuff Properly ◦ Lubricate the Posterior LMA Surface ◦ Slight Flexion of the Head on the Neck Can Help ◦ How You Hold the LMA Matters ◦ Open The Mouth As Wide As You Can ◦ Insert As Far Back as Possible Until It Seats ◦ Be careful With the Tongue
