Pre-hospital use in emergency patients of a laryngeal mask airway by ambulance paramedics is a safe, effective alternative for endotracheal intubation
from British Medical Journal
In Dutch ambulance practice, failure or inability to intubate patients with altered oxygenation and/or ventilation leaves bag-valve mask ventilation as the only alternative, which is undesirable for patient outcome. A novel Laryngeal Mask Airway Supreme (LMA-S) device may be a suitable alternative. The aim of this research was to evaluate the effectiveness and suitability of the LMA-S for emergency medical services in daily out-of-hospital emergency practice.
