Abstract: As an important supraglottic airway tool,laryngeal mask airway(LMA) has been used more and more widely in clinic. In addition to being used in gynaecological and pediatric small-scale elective surgery, it has also been used in elderly patients' surgery, obese patients' auxiliary ventilation, thoracic surgery, and even emergency airway management. There are different ventilation modes of anesthesia machine during general anesthesia operation, but there is no conclusion on which mode to choose when using LMA. For different patients, different operations and different types of LMA, anesthesiologists can choose a relatively suitable ventilator mode and adjust respiratory parameters to reduce lung injury during mechanical ventilation, so that patients can obtain the best prognosis.

Key words: laryngeal mask, anesthesia, ventilation mode
