ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND

Satisfactory insertion of LMA after induction of anaesthesia [commencement of giving drugs either intravenous (IV) or inhalational to loss of eyelash reflex] requires sufficient depth of anaesthesia.

The aim of this randomised study was to compare the conditions for Laryngeal Mask Airway insertion following induction of anaesthesia with inhalation of Sevoflurane or intravenous induction with Propofol.

MATERIALS AND METHODS

The non-randomised controlled trial study was conducted with a sample size of 50 adults, ASA class I/II, aged between 18 - 60 years, scheduled for elective surgery after obtaining an informed written consent from the patients.

RESULTS

The results of our study showed that sevoflurane is associated with good haemodynamic stability, but quality of anaesthesia provided with propofol is superior with a statistically significant p value < 0.5.

CONCLUSION

In our study, even though sevoflurane is associated with good haemodynamic stability, quality of anaesthesia provided with propofol is superior.

KEY WORDS

Adults, LMA, Sevoflurane, Propofol, Sample Size.
