Laryngeal Mask Airway Insertion

Basic inserton of a LMA by Cape Town Emergency Medicine


Lesson 4 - Laryngeal Mask Airway: MICU Fellows Airway Course

"Any port in a storm", the old saying goes for sailors. When you are managing an airway in the ICU, you will rarely consider a laryngeal mask airway (LMA), as this is not a "definitive" airway like an endotracheal tube or a tracheostomy. Though the LMA "seats" in the posterior pharyx, it does not seal off the trachea, thus it leaves the patient at risk for aspiration. Hence, not a great long term solution for airway management. But in a "storm", different story.
The LMA has emerged as a great rescue device in airway management. Often, the very patient who is difficult to intubate, is the very person who can accommodate an LMA just fine. That allows you to ventilate for a short time while you get extra help/equipment. So in the can't intubate, can't ventilate (through mask ventilation) situation, the LMA will often change you to a can't intubate CAN ventilate (through the LMA). Aah, much better!
