Since the first Goldman cuff mask in 1981, by 1986, Brain has used a variety of laryngeal masks to successfully perform anesthesia for thousands of people. But things didn't always go smoothly. At first, no company was willing to put the mask on the production. The profit of the production of the laryngeal mask was too small. Even the rubber giants like Dunlop lacked the enthusiasm for building a factory for the laryngeal mask. On a safe night shift night, Brain made a bizarre dream: groups of soldiers landed in the Seychelles where he had worked. When he woke up, he recalled that there was a small plastic factory in Seychelles. Without further ado, Brain rushed to Seychelles and soon met a visionary entrepreneur, Cooper. Although Cooper did not have any medical background, he was very confident in Brain. With the support of Cooper, India's Bivona is willing to manufacture the laryngeal masks in volume. In 1987, the laryngeal masks went from Brain's hand workshop to the industrial production line. In 1988, the laryngeal mask was officially launched in the UK, initially represented by a pacifier company. . And the famous British anesthesiologist Nunn conducted an independent clinical experiment using the laryngeal mask provided by Brain. In 1989, the results were published in , highlighting the advantages of the laryngeal mask. This plays an invaluable role in the promotion of the laryngeal mask. Since then, more and more British anesthesiologists have accepted and started using laryngeal masks.

Since then, the United States in the Atlantic began to notice the laryngeal mask. The original laryngeal mask was actually smuggled into the United States. Due to FDA regulations, the laryngeal mask must be verified in the United States before it can be listed in the United States. Dissatisfaction: The publication of the attacked the FDA. As expected, the laryngeal mask was finally approved by the FDA in 1991.

Since then, laryngeal masks have begun to be used more widely, serving hundreds of millions of people.
