Comparative evaluation of Intubating Laryngeal Mask Airway (ILMA), I-gel and Ambu AuraGain for blind tracheal intubation in adults.

J Anaesthesiol Clin Pharmacol 2022 Jan-Mar;38(1):130-136. Epub 2021 Sep 21.

Department of Neuroanaesthesia and Critical Care, AIIMS, Delhi, India.

Background And Aims: The supraglottic airway devices (SADs) that allow direct (without an intermediary device like Aintree or airway exchange catheters) tracheal intubation can be invaluable for field use in conditions ideally managed by intubation. Whilst fiberscope-guided intubation is the method of choice, if these 'direct-intubation' SADs could provide high success rates for blind tracheal intubation, their scope of use can increase tremendously. Our study assesses intubating laryngeal mask airway (ILMA), i-gel and Ambu AuraGain for blind tracheal intubation in adults. Read More
