ABSTRACT

Background: In case of general anesthesia, airway maintenance along with least complications is the most important goal of team of  anesthesiologists. In case of clinical practice, the laryngeal mask airway (LMA) devices  have superiority  in managing  supraglottic airway. Recently i-gel airway has been introduced as supraglottic airway equipment (disposable).
Aim: To make comparison between laryngeal mask and I-gel with respect to postoperative complication of sore throat in  case of patients who were  given general anesthesia.
Study design: Randomized trial
Setting: Anesthesia Department
Study duration: 6 after synopsis approval in total 6months of duration
Methods: Candidates were divided randomly divided into two groups. In case of members of group A, patients were given i-gel where as members of group B, disposable LMA was given. General anesthesia was administered according to the standardized protocols. A day after operation, candidates were check post operatively for 24 hours, for sore throat and information was documented on Performa.
Results: The candidates mean age was 44.23±15.11years in case of  i-gel group members  whereas  46.10±15.56 years in  case of LMA group. In case of i-gel group, there were about twenty five males members and thirty five were  females members . In case of LMA group members, there were  about twenty six males and thirty four  female members . In present case research, sore throat postoperatively was seen in case of 17(14.2%) cases, i.e. 4 (6.7%) in i-gel  group while 13(21.7%) in case of  LMA group. The significant difference was witnessed between members of  both  groups (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Thus i-gel is better than LMA for general anesthesia as it has fewer chances of side effects like postoperative sore throat.
Keywords: Postoperative sore throat, I-gel, laryngeal mask airway, general anesthesia
