Introduction: Securing airway with laryngeal mask airway is the preferred technique in modern world. We compared Ambu Auragain with Laryngeal Mask Airway Supreme in this study for controlled ventilation under general anesthesia.
Material and Methods: Fifty patients of ASA-I and II of American Society of Anesthesiologists, of either gender aged 18 to 50 years, weight 30 to 70 kg, with MPG -I/II posted for elective surgeries under general anesthesia held in supine position were included in the study. They were randomly divided patients into 2 groups of 25 patients each. In present study we observed the ease and attempt of insertion, time taken for insertion, ease of gastric tube insertion, pharyngeal leak pressure and the hemodynamic stability for both Ambu Auragain and laryngeal mask airway supreme.
Result: Ambu Auragain and Laryngeal Mask Airway Supreme both are statistically comparable in relation to ease of insertion, time of insertion and number of attempts for placement. Ambu Auragain has higher pharyngeal leak pressure compared to Laryngeal Mask Airway Supreme. Both of these provided stable hemodynamics during surgery.
Conclusion: Ambu Auragain can be a better alternative to Laryngeal Mask Airway Supreme for controlled ventilation under general anesthesia as pharyngeal leak pressure is higher in Ambu Auragain.
