Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The cuffed pharyngeal tube (CPT) is a hand-made device designed to maintain upper airway patency during anaesthesia. Two cases of difficult intubation managed successfully using the new device are described. Insertion was easily achieved at the first attempt in each case. The incisor-tip distance of the CPT is 14 cm and the cuff is inflated with 60 ml of air in an average adult.
