The LMA® Airway for Endoscopic Procedures


Separate Gastric and Airway Access

Respiratory depression from sedative drugs and airway obstruction requiring intervention are known risks associated with endoscopic procedures, with studies demonstrating that hypoxemia can occur in 11–50% of cases.1-3 The LMA® Gastro™ Airway with Cuff Pilot™ Technology from Teleflex is the only laryngeal mask specifically designed to give clinicians control of their patients’ airways while facilitating direct endoscopic access via the integrated endoscope channel. With the airway in place, clinicians can monitor end tidal CO2 for patient safety. The LMA® Gastro™ Airway is indicated for airway management in adult patients undergoing endoscopic procedures.
