LMA® Airways

The latest innovations in LMA® Airway design

New products, expanded applications, and innovative design features to help clinicians reduce the risk of airway-related complications – it’s what you have come to expect from a leader in airway management who has led the way right from the start.

LMA® Unique (Silicone Cuff) Airway

LMA<sup>®</sup> Unique<sup>™</sup> (Silicone Cuff) Airway

A first-generation airway with the added benefits of integrated cuff pressure monitoring

The LMA® Unique (Silicone Cuff) Airway with Cuff Pilot Technology from Teleflex combines all the features of the LMA® Unique Airway with the added benefits of integrated cuff pressure monitoring and a silicone cuff.1,2,7 Potential benefits of silicone over polyvinyl chloride (PVC) include:

  • Greater elasticity to conform to the anatomy1-3
  • Higher oropharyngeal seal pressures2-4
  • A lower risk of post-operative sore throat5,6
  • Not made with phthalates

LMA® Unique EVO Airway

LMA<sup>®</sup> Unique EVO<sup>™</sup> Airway

A first-generation airway with Intubation Capability

The LMA® Unique EVO Airway from Teleflex is a fixed-curve, first-generation laryngeal mask that is designed specifically to support fiberscope-assisted direct intubation with endotracheal tubes sized 7.0 – 8.0 mm for effective airway replacement during unforeseen difficult airway situations. The LMA® Unique EVO Airway is also available with Cuff Pilot Technology to provide at-a-glance feedback, highlighting changes that could affect patient safety.

LMA® Gastro Airway

LMA<sup>®</sup> Gastro<sup>™</sup> Airway

Proactive airway management for endoscopy procedures

The LMA® Gastro Airway with Cuff Pilot Technology from Teleflex is the first laryngeal mask specifically designed to enable clinicians to proactively manage 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.

LMA® Protector Airway

LMA<sup>®</sup> Protector<sup>™</sup> Airway

The most advanced second-generation airway from Teleflex.

The LMA® Protector Airway with Cuff Pilot Technology from Teleflex is the only laryngeal mask that combines a pharyngeal chamber and dual gastric drainage channels, designed specifically to channel gastric content away from the airway. The LMA® Protector Airway features Cuff Pilot Technology and a 100% silicone airway tube and cuff.

Cuff Pilot Technology

Cuff Pilot<sup>™</sup> Technology

An integrated cuff pressure indicator

Cuff Pilot Technology was developed to support clinicians in avoiding the known risks of cuff hyperinflation, which include sore throat, dysphagia, an increased risk of aspiration due to leakage around the cuff, and hypoglossal, lingual, or recurrent laryngeal nerve palsies.8-11 Cuff Pilot Technology is an integrated, single-use cuff pressure indicator that constantly monitors cuff pressure, detecting changes resulting from fluctuations in temperature, nitrous oxide levels, and movements within the airway.

Simple to use:
a simple glance is all that‘s needed to confirm optimal intracuff pressure right from the start – and throughout the procedure

Supports a reliable seal:
designed to help clinicians maintain the optimal intracuff pressure of 40-60 cm H20 required to achieve a reliable oropharyngeal seal

Strategy to reduce the risk of airway morbidity:
throughout a procedure clinicians can monitor intracuff pressure to ensure it does not exceed 60 cm H20 – a strategy shown to reduce airway morbidity by up to 70%10-12

LMA® Supreme Airway

LMA<sup>®</sup> Supreme<sup>™</sup> Airway

The Innovative Second-Generation LMA® Airway

The LMA® Supreme Airway from Teleflex is designed to increase efficacy and safety versus first-generation devices.13,14 Specific design features aimed at reducing the risk of aspiration, together with extensive clinical evidence supporting its use across a broad range of procedures,15-19 make the LMA® Supreme Airway a suitable option for both routine and more challenging cases.
