Laryngeal mask airway is a supraglottic airway device developed by Archie Brain, M.D. and introduced into clinical practice in 1988. Dr. Brain described the device as “an alternative to either the endotracheal tube or the face-mask with either spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation. The laryngeal mask airway has significantly improved the comfort and safety of airway management worldwide.
The reinforced laryngeal mask airway is flexible and with medical-grade spiral wire inside main tube, no kinking.
