The Laryngeal Mask Airway (LMA) is a supraglottic airway device designed to maintain a clear airway which sits above the larynx and creates a seal around the larynx. The LMA-ProSeal is a second generation supraglottic airway device with modified cuff and drainage tube for gastric tube insertion. The i-gel airway is a novel and innovative supraglottic airway management device made of a medical grade thermoplastic elastomer which is soft, gel-like and transparent. The i-gel is designed to create a non-inflatable anatomical seal of the pharyngeal, laryngeal and peri-laryngeal structures while avoiding the compression trauma that can occur with inflatable supraglottic airway devices.

Abstract


The Laryngeal Mask Airway (LMA) is a supraglottic airway device designed to maintain a clear airway which sits above the larynx and creates a seal around the larynx. The LMA-ProSeal is a second generation supraglottic airway device with modified cuff and drainage tube for gastric tube insertion. The i-gel airway is a novel and innovative supraglottic airway management device made of a medical grade thermoplastic elastomer which is soft, gel-like and transparent. The i-gel is designed to create a non-inflatable anatomical seal of the pharyngeal, laryngeal and peri-laryngeal structures while avoiding the compression trauma that can occur with inflatable supraglottic airway devices.
