Hi,Anybody tried insertion of LMA in prone position?Read an article in Indian Journal of Anst Dec 2008??Was impressed with the study. Read and read over and over again. They had used LMA Classic in the study of 200 cases with only two cases where they had to reinsert, in variety of cases inclusive Spine and in obese patients.We made up our mind to try once. We use LMA Supreme. This is much better shaped device. We do Liposuction in obese patients in prone position first and later in supine position. We tried it in a case. Made the patient sleep in prone position and then induced her. It was easy to ventilate ( as the tongue does not fall back, it rises in prone)and very easy to insert the LMA. We connected the patient to venti. The patient was in prone for an hour and half, and all was ok.We made her supine and completed the surgery of front in next 2 hours.It was most easy. We tried it in about a dozen cases after that and are happy.The idea is to try it once, so that one is not afraid, if ever a tube gets dislodged in prone, you can always insert an LMA and manage the case.Sounded like a creazy idea to start with, but the article was presented nicely and we were tempted in trying it.Please let me know if any one has tried, and if any difficulties.Regs.
