Re: Use of LMA'S



Medcenter Air in Charlotte NC, we are using the LMA as part of our failed
intubation algorithmn. We are using the "fast-trach" LMA, it is an
"intubating LMA" once the LMA is placed, a endotracheal tube can be blindly
passed through it. I was on a flight were we needed to use it once this
spring, and it worked well for us. We were able to intubate blindly through
it.
 I believe one of the draw backs to this type of LMA is its increased cost,
but it is sure nice to have in your bag of tricks!

>I was wondering if there are programs that have the LMA's in their
protocols for difficult intubations and if so, how often are you using them.
I am working on a research project.  Thanks
