A comparison of the laryngeal mask airway with the facemask and oropharyngeal airway for manual ventilation by first responders in children.

We investigated this by comparing the ability of 36 paediatric ward nurses to ventilate the lungs of 99 anaesthetised children (a model for cardiopulmonary arrest) using a laryngeal mask airway and using a facemask with an oropharyngeal airway.
