Abstract

Aims: The airway management during the general anaesthesia is mainly done using laryngeal mask airway.
The anaesthesia that is used for this purpose is either propofol or sevoflurane supplied through inhalational
route for painless insertion. Hence, the study was conducted with the aim of comparing 8% sevoflurane
and 1% Propofol with regard to efficacy and associated complications.
Materials and Methods: This prospective experimental study included adult subjects who were
undergoing minor surgeries. The subjects were equally distributed into two groups. The Group-1 received
propofol 2-2.5 mg/kg body weight and Group-2 received 8% sevoflurane. The study outcomes were
determined induction characteristics such as loss of verbal contact, eyelash reflex, jaw relaxation and
some attempts for insertion were assessed. The other parameters that were recorded were grading of the
parameters, blood pressure, and heart rate and associated complications.
Results: A total of 60 participants were included in the study. Propofol took a lesser time for Induction
characteristics as compared to that of sevoflurane. It was observed that propofol was associated with fall in
heart rate and blood pressure and more rate of complications.
Conclusion: Faster induction was observed in Propofol while good hemodynamic stability was associated
with Sevoflurane.

Keywords: Laryngeal mask airway, Propofol, Sevoflurane.
