Morbid Obesity and Supraglottic Airway Devices

Ben Babu Kurien, Sampathila Padmanabha, Vincent Mathias.

Abstract
Securing the airway in obese individuals is challenging both in the operation theatres as well as in the intensive care. Laryngoscopy in morbidly obese is difficult due to the pathophysiological changes in the upper airway and neck. Supraglottic airway device can be used alone to maintain the airway during short surgical procedures or it can act as a conduit for passage of endotracheal tube during major surgical procedures or in the intensive care. Studies have shown there need not be any fear of airway related complications while using supraglottic airway device in obesity. In this review, we emphasize how supraglottic airway device is a saviour in difficult airway situation.

Key words: Obesity, SAD, LMA, BMI
