Cuffed oropharyngeal airway: a new tool for airway management

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The aim of the study was to evaluate the use of cuffed oropharyngeal airway (COPA) in spontaneously breathing patients (n = 162) under total anesthesia and to compare the new method with the laryngeal mask (LM) (n = 172). COPA provided adequate well-hermetized airway in operations under total anesthesia on spontaneously breathing patients. COPA can serve as an alternative to LM in patients with spontaneous respiration, as no appreciable differences in the incidence and type of complications in the two groups were observed. COPA extends the anesthesiologist's potentialities in ensuring reliable patency of airways, is simple, and requires no special training.
