For such procedures, various supraglottic airway devices have been designed and are being used exceedingly.
Mucosal lumps extend throughout the supraglottic portion of the pharynx, including the laryngeal surface of the epiglottis and the posterior pharynx.

28, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- For patients with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA), 72-hour survival is better with initial laryngeal tube (LT) insertion compared to endotracheal intubation (ETI), while a supraglottic airway device (SGA) is no better than tracheal intubation (TI) for functional outcome at 30 days, according to two studies published in the Aug.
Supraglottic device is planned when the patient is anxious, not cooperative, to prevent airway collapse, edentulous patients, obese patients, small lesion or lesion near great vessels demanding immobile patient.
In our case, the mass measuring 2x3 cm in size was located in the supraglottic area.
Furthermore, deficiencies in airway assessment, underutilization of awake tracheal intubation, inappropriate use of supraglottic airway devices, and evidence of poor airway management planning were also noted.[4] These findings indicate that current strategies for airway management are not ideal and further improvements are required.
Of the advanced airway options, a supraglottic airway helps to maintain flow time because, unlike, with an endotracheal tube (ETT), compression pauses do not occur during its insertion.
