Laryngeal Mask, also known as Laryngeal Tube, Laryngeal Mask Airway, Intubating Laryngeal Mask Airway, Laryngeal Mask for Anesthesia — is a medical device that keeps a patient's airway open during anaesthesia or unconsciousness. It is a type of supraglottic airway device. Silicone Laryngeal Mask are mainly produced by Liquid Silicone Injection Molding with FDA Medical Grade Liquid Silicone Material.
Why Choose LSR Molding for Laryngeal Mask
1. LSR Laryngeal Mask Mold is much better than compression mold, the material feeding system is different, also the temperature & pressure are controlled by machine, so the mold is precise, tolerance can up to 0.02mm.
2.LSR Laryngeal Mask produced by Liquid Silicone Injection Molding is with high quality, no flash & burrs, if produce by compression mold, there will probably big flash, once the burrs fall into the human body, that would be not OK; and the parting line will also bigger than the Laryngeal Mask produced by Liquid Silicone Injection Molding, the patients will feel uncomfotable during use.
Because the injection molding’s material feeding system is different from compression molding, the temperature, pressure and injection way is controlled by the machine
3. Liquid Silicone Material is is safer than solid silicone for compression molding. LSR is resistant to bacteria growth and won’t stain or corrode other materials. (during production process, solid silicone for compression molding needs to put on the mold manually, and sometimes in order to make the part eject from the mold easier, production people will spray mold release on the mold, while if produced bu injection molding, there won’t be this kinds of concerns, because the whole process is completed by machine. )
4. LSR Material can be fully cured, so it is more safe, biocompatibility is good. The material can be sterilized via a variety of methods, including steam autoclaving, ethylene oxide (ETO), gamma, e-beam and numerous other techniques, meeting all required approvals such as BfR XV, FDA 21 CFR 177.2600, etc. The followed are the material data sheet for your reference:
Laryngeal Mask Applications
can be applied to first-aid, ICU and any acute disease treatment
for those patients to whom intubatton is difficult
patients who need special position of operation on head or back
examination tracheal, laryngeal and elimination of impurities
patients who do not want to use tracheal tube
