Abstract :

 Endotracheal intubation is the most important and crucial step during administration of general anaesthesia. Propofol is a hypnotic agent, obtunds airway reflexes, and allows laryngoscopy and intubation. Sevoflurane is a newer volatile induction agent with low blood–gas solubility and has a pleasant smell, low airway irritability and better haemodynamic characters. The study was done in 60 ASA PS I and II, aged 20–40 yearspatients, were randomly divided into two groups and monitored heart rate (HR), blood pressure(BP), Oxygen saturation (SPO2) and Electrocardiogram (ECG) in both groups. In group B patients (93%) had significantly better and acceptable intubation conditions than group A (73%) with P value of < 0.001.
