Resumen

GONZALEZ DEL PINO RUZ, Israel et al. Effectiveness of Ambu® Aura40TM laryngeal mask for general anesthetic in pediatric orthopedic surgery. Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2019, vol.41, n.6, pp.1325-1340.  Epub 31-Dic-2019. ISSN 1684-1824.

Introduction:

laryngeal mask are supra glottal devices widely used in anesthetics for approaching and maintaining the airway. One of them, the Ambu® Aura 40TM, has a design allowing to adjust to the surroundings of hypo-pharynx with its lumen directed to the pharyngeal opening. It has demonstrated to be adequate for surgical procedures when there is no need of endotracheal intubation.

Objective:

to determine the effectiveness of that laryngeal mask for general anesthetic in pediatric orthopedic surgery.

Materials and methods:

a cross-sectional, prospective, descriptive study was carried out in 135 patients who underwent elective surgical intervention in the Pediatric Hospital ?Eliseo Noel Caamaño?, of Matanzas, in the period January 2015- June 2017. The number of attempts and the time needed to insert laryngeal mask, the necessity of changing it for an endotracheal tube, and complications related to its usage were taking into account.

Results:

Ambu® Aura 40TM laryngeal mask was effective in most patients, due to it allowed to perform the surgery without need of changing it for an endotracheal tube, and the low appearance of complications related to its use.

Conclusions:

Ambu® Aura 40TM laryngeal mask was effective because it was inserted correctly at the first attempt, in a time less than 20 seconds. Only a minority needed to replace it by endotracheal tube, and the appearance of complications related to its use were low.
