The I-gel (Intersurgical Ltd, Wokingham, Berkshire, UK) is a supraglottic airway device with an anatomically designed non-inflatable mask that snugly fts onto the perilaryngeal framework.
"Among patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, randomization to a strategy of advanced airway management with a supraglottic airway device compared with tracheal intubation did not result in a favorable functional outcome at 30 days," Benger and colleagues write.
I-gel, supraglottic airway device 2007, made up of thermoplastic elastomer styrene, ethylene butadiene styrene, soft gel-like feel, non-inflatable cuff, [1] perfect anatomical fit of supraglottic area, shape and softness adds to perfect fit and seal, gentle compression effect and less or no trauma during insertion and less chance of displacement once fixed.
Those guidelines underscore the need to give priority to airway management in patients with facial swelling, especially the lips, always using the algorithm for a difficult airway and avoiding supraglottic devices.
In recent years, supraglottic airway devices have varied in terms of both shape and flexibility of material, and they have strengthened the anesthetist's hand as an alternative to invasive devices in a difficult airway (6).
Since the main aim of designing the FDAE approach was to assess the ability to obtain adequate facemask ventilation after anesthetic induction in patients with potential difficult airways, supraglottic airway devices were not used as the tools to manage difficult facemask ventilation.
Under these hypotheses, we performed a simulation study of the management of OHCA occurring in a high-rise building to examine the effects of mechanical compressions and supraglottic airway use on the quality of CPR, focusing on flow time using time-motion analysis.
Tubeless techniques include intermittent apnoeic ventilation, supraglottic or transtracheal jet ventilation via a catheter, and THRIVE.
The patient was then admitted to the hospital, and urgent computed tomography (CT) scan of the neck was done and revealed a 3 cm linear foreign body embedded in the soft tissue medial to the left thyroid cartilage with surrounding hypodense soft tissue swelling causing mild indentation of the left vocal cord extending into the supraglottic region up to the left pyriform sinus and downwards minimally extending to the infraglottic region causing mild asymmetric narrowing of the involved laryngeal segments and causing mass effect on the glottis and supraglottic airway causing mild asymmetric narrowing (Figure 1).
Supraglottic cancers are detected in later stages, and their tumor control rates are lower than those of glottic cancers, because their tendency to neck metastasis is higher (20).
