According to this study:

  • For adults who had an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, a strategy of initial laryngeal tube insertion instead of endotracheal intubation was associated with significantly greater 72-hour survival.
  • Return of spontaneous circulation hospital survival, and favorable neurologic status at discharge were also better in patients who had a laryngeal tube inserted compared with endotracheal intubation.
