The Laryngeal Tube is a supraglottic airway device for the use in general anesthesia during spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation. In emergency it is an ideal adjunct to secure the airway during difficult airway management as an alternative technique to mask ventilation and tracheal intubation.
Securing the airway is one of the major aspects for a successful resuscitation. In the current guidelines of the European Resuscitation Council (ERC), the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) the Laryngeal Tube has been implemented as an alternative (aid) for securing the airway during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
The Layngeal Tube is available single lumen (LT/LT-D) as well as dual lumen (LTS-D/LTS II). With the dual lumen version the main advantages of the single lumen laryngeal tube were complemented by a drainage tube for suction (prevention against aspiration).
Form and design allow an easy insertion and correct position in the hypopharynx.
The Laryngeal Tube is available in different sizes. For use form newborn to adults. The selection is based on weight or rather body size.
Four product variants of the Laryngeal Tube are available for the user.
Largest suction possibility with easy access. Tube sizes up to 18 Fr.
Connector and syringe are colour coordinated and clearly indicate the maximum recommended inflation volume during cuff inflation.

This video shows the usage of the LTS-D in emergency medicine.
Excessive cuff pressure can lead to swelling of the tongue. Adjust the cuff pressure to max. 60 cmH2O via the VBM cuff pressure gauge.
