An interesting discussion, and Bruce and Harvey raise what are clearly
valid concerns. I just can't agree that the truth lies in either camp. My
position lies somewhere in the middle (for a truly anti-sux position, talk
to Al Sachetti).
In answer to your question, Jeffrey, the more I use it the more I like the
LMA. It is my first option in the nightmare can't-ventilate-can't-intubate
scenario. Obviously, this will not help me below 15-20 kg. What would you
suggest in the wee ones?
