Abstract

Background: The I-gel mask is a novel supraglottic airway device. The objective of this study is to compare the insertion conditions for I-gel, using propofol, thiopentone and thiopentone with topical lignocaine spray. Materials and methods: 60 ASA I-II patients aged 18-65yrs scheduled for elective surgeries were randomized into three groups. Group P will receive injection propofol 2.5mg/kg,group T will receive injection thiopentone 5mg/kg and group TL will receive 2 sprays of lignocaine 10% (10mg/puff) to each side of oropharynx (total 40mg) followed by injection thiopentone 5mg/kg. Results: Mean time taken for i-gel insertion in group T was comparatively longer than other two groups. The difference in rating was significant showing that ease of insertion was superior in group P followed by group TL and then group T. Conclusion: I-gel inserting condition can be improved by prior topical lignocaine spray.
