The LMA and similar supraglottic airway devices use an inflatable cuff to wedge into the upper oesophagus and provide a perilaryngeal seal.
A specific feature of the design of PLMA is the presence of a second cuff on the mask backplate, connected to the main perilaryngeal cuff and aimed to increase oropharyngeal sealing by pushing the PLMA against the larynx from the posterior hypopharyngeal wall (Figure 1).
Unexpected death in a horse with arytenoid chondritis and perilaryngeal lesions.
This would place it in the category of a cuffed perilaryngeal sealer like the cLMA (8).
Made from a medical grade thermoplastic elastomer, i-gel has been designed to create a non-inflatable, anatomical seal of the pharyngeal, laryngeal and perilaryngeal structures while avoiding compression trauma.
The new perilaryngeal airway (CobraPLA) is as efficient as the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) but provides better airway sealing pressures.
The I-Gel is designed to create a non-inflatable anatomical seal of the pharyngeal, laryngeal and perilaryngeal structures while avoiding compression trauma.
I read with interest the recent article of Andrews and colleagues, comparing the Classic-LMA[TM] (LMA) to the Cobra Perilaryngeal Airway[TM] (PLA) (1).
Hence the design of our study was aimed to compare current real world LMA use (including size selection) with the Cobra Perilaryngeal Airway[TM] and we believe that our results reflect this practice.
It is designed to achieve a mirror impression of pharyngeal and laryngeal structures and to provide a perilaryngeal seal without cuff inflation.
