Performance of the laryngeal tube for airway management during cardiopulmonary resuscitation: a systematic review and meta-analysis.



Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in Europe and the whole world. Effective chest compressions and advanced airway management have been shown to improve survival rates. Supraglottic airway devices such as the laryngeal tube (LT) are a well-known strategy for patients with cardiac arrest during both Basic (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS). This systematic literature review aims to summarize current data for using the LT when performing BLS and ALS.
