Table 3 Oropharyngeal leak pressure, peak inspiratory pressure, and expiratory tidal volume in several positions.

VariableControl group (n=27)Lightwand group (n=27)P value
OLP (cmHO)0.478
 Extension20.4±8.1* 20.5±9.7*
 Extension16.3±3.7* 14.9±7.4
Expiratory tidal volume0.521
 Extension302.7±141.5* 315.4±189.2*
Values are presented as median (interquartile range) or mean±SD or numbers. Control group – standard digital manipulation method group; Lightwand group – lightwand guided method group; OLP – oropharyngeal leak pressure; PIP – peak inspiratory pressure.
* Significant different compared to neutral position.
