Closing the Circuit: Taping the King LT Suction Port

In order to best provide a closed circuit while using a King-LT supraglottic airway, tape over the suction port.  The suggested adhesive ranking (best – least recommended):

 

  • Waterproof tape
  • Transpore tape
  • Tegaderm
  • Paper tape

No matter which adhesive used, remember to monitor the integrity of coverage, as the adhesive may come off during transport.
