If I have successfully inserted an SGA and then have to remove it, due to vomitus; do I have 2 further attempts at re-insertion, or is it 2 attempts total despite having successfully completed an insertion previously?


Removing and reinserting an SGA in order to suction is not considered an “attempt” by SWORBHP Medical Council. Once removed, further insertions are new instances, and you would have 2 attempts every time you are establishing the SGA.
