We report smooth weaning from mechanical ventilation in a patient with COVID-19. The use of the supraglottic airway device can cause fewer coughs in weaning from mechanical ventilation. This procedure avoids the aerosol-generating procedure, tracheal extubation, and is beneficial in terms of occupational health for health care workers.
