Abstract

Purpose: General anesthesia for the nonintubated oral and maxillofacial surgical patient presents unique anesthetic conditions. The primary concern is the maintenance of an unobstructed airway and protection against aspiration, while minimizing both interference and interruption of the surgical procedure. The laryngeal mask airway is an alternative to the nasal hood for such airway management. The purpose of this article is to inform the oral and maxillofacial surgeon of the clinical relevant information pertaining to the use of the laryngeal mask airway in oral and maxillofacial surgery. Experience with clinical use is discussed.
