LMA® Flexible™ Airway
LMA Flexible™: truly flexible
- Designed for shared airways – airway tube can be moved out of the surgical field without displacement of the cuff, or loss of seal for the anaesthetistst
- Improved recovery profile – children undergoing adenotonsillectomies with LMA Flexible™ spent significantly less time in the operating room after surgery, had a lower incidence of airway irritation and experienced lower postoperative pain in the first 4 hours vs an ETT17
- Patient protection – LMA Flexible™ acts as a barrier, preventing soiling of the glottis or trachea by blood or secretions from above18
More protection than an ETT: Besides being easier on the patient than an ETT, studies have shown that the LMA FlexibleTM also provides better protection from blood andsecretions from above the trachea.18
The LMA Flexible™ provided an unobstructed airway in all patients. The LMA Flexible™ protects the larynx from contamination during and after the operation until the return of the patient’s own protective reflexes.
