More than You Ever Wanted to Know About Extra Glottic Devices

Our good friend Jim DuCanto visited us earlier this year. We spent several days sharing knowledge and perspectives.

Part of our time together was spent recording this podcast. It has been simmering and is finally available for listening. Within, we briefly go through the history of the extra-glottic device (EGD) in general, and then, we talk about the Laryngeal Mask Airway (LMA) and its “descendants” in great detail.

Jim really had a tremendous wealth of knowledge to share…
