Laryngeal  mask airway

Laryngeal mask was developed in 1980's, and recently is being used extensively in emergency medicine. It affords excellent ventilation without going through the normal intubation process and visualization of laryngeal inlet. It should be considered as a supraglottic airway management device. It can be introduced even by an emergency technician with training during emergency situations. Visualization of glottis is not essential for introduction of laryngeal mask airway.

Laryngeal mask was first developed by a British Anesthesiologist by name Archie Brain in 1980. Brain considered laryngeal mask airway as a physical junction between artificial and anatomic airway.
