Laryngeal Mask Airway in Pediatric Adenotonsillectomy

Brief description of study

The study will compare how often the tubing kinks when a LMA (laryngeal mask airway) with modified retractor is used compared to use of an endotracheal tube (ETT) and non modified retractor is used.

Detailed Study Description

The laryngeal mask airway (LMA)is a device used to secure the airway of patients during general anesthesia. This device is routinely used for anesthesia in elective head and neck surgeries, including adenotonsillectomy. In this study, the efficacy of the LMA will be studied as it pertains to operative times and cost.

The child will be randomized into either the LMA group or the ETT group.

Clinical Study Identifier: NCT01695980
