Abstract :

Background : Supraglottic airway devices are quicker airway control devices even in inexperienced personel. It has better hemodynamic control, less complications and better avoids the disadvantages of the ET insertion. In our study, We compare the performance of CLASSIC LMA and AMBU LMA in minor gynecological procedures. Materials & Methods : In a Prospective randomised case control study, 30 patients in each group were enrolled. size 3 or 4 LMA was used in all adult patients under General anaesthesia without muscle relaxant. Results : AMBU LMA has 90% ease of insertion, 93.3% in first attempt, less time taken for insertion (15 seconds), better hemodynamic control in 5 minutes compared to CLASSIC LMA ( 63%,83.3%,24seconds respectively). Complications like sore throat, blood stain in throat is comparable in both LMA. Conclusion : AMBU LMA has superior performance compared to CLASSIC LMA, and has no significance in view of complications like sore throat.
