Stable capnogram was established before proceeding for scan; 10 min.
Following insertion, the position of the cLMA was checked for airway patency by either observing the patient's respiratory movement and the capnogram when breathing spontaneously, or in apnoeic patients observing for chest expansion and the capnogram during manual ventilation.
After insertion, an initial assessment of ventilation was made after the device had been connected to the breathing system by either observing the patient's respiratory movement and the capnogram when breathing spontaneously or, in apnoeic patients (most cases), observing for chest expansion and the capnogram by gently squeezing the reservoir bag.
