If we compare the 'Combitube-like' SADs, such as Cobra-PLA[TM] (Engineered Medical Systems, Indianapolis, IN, USA), Easytube[TM] (Teleflex Medical, Dublin, Ireland) or Laryngeal tube[TM] (VBM Medizintechnik GmbH, Sulz am Neckar, Germany), we might assume that these devices when compared with 'LMA-like' SADs are easier to insert (11-13) due to their linear shape, lower profile and increased stiffiness; on other hand they show a different performance with respect to sealing pressures, advanced manoeuvres (such as fiberoptic combined use) and gastric access, which is limited only to newer generation devices such as Intubation-LTS[TM] (VBM Medizintechnik GmbH, Sulz am Neckar, Germany) (14).
