The Laryngeal Tube is a supraglottic airway device for the use in general anaesthesia during spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation. In emergency it is an ideal adjunct to secure the airway during difficult airway management as an alternative technique to mask ventilation and tracheal intubation.
Securing the airway is one of the major aspects for a successful resuscitation. In the current guidelines of the European Resuscitation Council (ERC), the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Society of Anaesthesiologists (ASA) the Laryngeal Tube has been implemented as an alternative (aid) for securing the airway during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
