Following the publication of our article [1] it was brought to our attention that we inadvertently used the registered trademark of the Laryngeal Mask Company Limited (LMA) as the abbreviation for laryngeal mask airway. A Portex® Soft Seal® Laryngeal Mask was used and not a device manufactured by the Laryngeal Mask Company.

All abbreviations for laryngeal mask airway written as LMA should be written in full as laryngeal mask airway.




Dr Sarmud Masud was a co-author on our article [1]. We have tried to contact Dr Sarmad Masud regarding the publication of this correction article, but have been unsuccessful. We no reason to believe that Dr Sarmad Masud would object to this publication.
