Low-skill fibreoptic intubation: use of the Aintree Catheter with the classic LMA.

Author information

  • 1Warrington Hospital, North Cheshire NHS Trust, Warrington WA5 1QG, UK.


We describe a series of patients in whom anaesthetists - many of whom were trainees and had no prior experience of using the Aintree Intubation Catheter - successfully intubated the tracheas of patients in whom conventional attempts at intubation had failed. This was achieved by passing a fibrescope loaded with an Aintree Intubation Catheter through a classic Laryngeal Mask Airway (cLMA), which had already been placed to maintain the patient's airway.
