Laryngeal mask airway (LMA) is often performed for airway management. Correct placement of LMA can prevent severe leaks and even obstruction of the airway. Insertion under laryngoscope guidance has been used to achieve the ideal positioning of the LMA. Efficacy of LMA insertion by laryngoscope can be evaluated with cheap, safe, and easy to use method. This case series evaluates LMA insertion with McGrath video laryngoscope and Macintosh laryngoscope. We use 20 cases to evaluate oropharyngeal leak pressure, time taken for insertion, hemodynamic after insertion, first attempt insertion, ease of insertion, and adverse airway event after LMA insertion.
