Accuracy and precision (agreement) of the estimates of each rater, with and without the use of the SADs, was also determined based on the Lin's concordance correlation coefficient (LCCC; [[rho].sub.c]).
The survival rate of the SAD on the substrates was registered after 83 days in the sea, and this was calculated as a percentage based on the initial number of existing SADs prior to introduction to the sea (20 days in hatchery stage).
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).

The SADS Foundation is a family support programme that provides research, information and resources to support patients and families who are dealing with genetic conditions which cause sudden cardiac death in the young or those who have lost a loved one to the condition.
This was set up in memory of 12-yearold Oliver King from Liverpool who died from SADS. "A dozen people have been trained on how to use the defibrillator including coaches from the football and rugby league clubs along with sports leaders and people working at the community centre."
Every young adult who pursues sports will do good to undergo screening and parents of young individuals who are heavily into sport or exercise, with a family history of SADS, need to be vigilant.

Most items on the K- SADS are rated on a zero to three point scale with a score of zero indicating no information is available; '1' suggesting the symptom is not present; '2' indicating sub- threshold levels of symptomatology; and '3' representing threshold criteria32.
Each year an estimated 270 sudden cardiac arrest deaths occur in British schools, according to Sads UK, the Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome charity.
