I had an interesting case today, 6'1 330lbs male present for a right shoulder arthroscopy with rotator cuff repair. He has a large neck 3 FB TMD. He says he never has been to the doctor. He doesn't believe he has OSA. The orthopedic surgeon book him at their surgery center because he has good insurance. The case position is the left lateral decubitus position with a bean bag. I am curious how many PP docs would do this case with LMA or would you say it needs to be done as an inpatient?
