Supraglottic Airway (King LT): If the patient is in cardiac arrest and not actively vomiting, has no airway edema, stridor or caustic ingestion then insert supraglottic airway with a maximum of 2 attempts. An attempt at insertion is defined as the insertion of the airway into the patient’s mouth.
Confirm airway placement by auscultating, looking for chest rise and ETCO2.
