The laryngeal mask airway. Two cases of prehospital trauma care



The laryngeal mask airway. Two cases of prehospital trauma care



Anaesthesia 47(8): 688-689



Two cases of emergency prehospital airway control using the laryngeal mask are described. The patients were trapped following road traffic accidents and limited access prevented tracheal intubation. The laryngeal mask airway may be a useful alternative to tracheal intubation in some cases of prehospital trauma care.
