The use of ProSeal laryngeal mask airway in caesarean section--experience in 3000 cases.

Author information

Department of Anesthesia, Farah Hospital, Amman, Jordan.


Rapid sequence induction is currently the recommended technique in general anaesthesia for caesarean section. However, the usefulness of the ProSeal laryngeal mask airway as a rescue airway in the event of difficult or failed intubation has been recognised in numerous case reports. In this study, we report the experience of the use of the ProSeal laryngeal mask in 3000 elective caesarean sections in a single centre, using a method of insertion that allows a rapid establishment of a patent airway together with gastric drainage.
