Abstract

The laryngeal mask airway (LMA) was used within the hospital in 50 cardiac arrest cases during cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The LMA was inserted mainly by junior anaesthesia staff members with no previous experience with its use. The LMA was easily inserted providing a clear and unobstructed airway in 98% of the patients with clinically satisfactory ventilation and very good blood gas values. No signs of regurgitation or aspiration were detected.
