Abstract

Introduction: The descriptive study is to compare this new device, the Laryngeal tube airway with the Laryngeal mask airway in securing the upper airway during short surgical procedures under general anesthesia.
Methodology: After obtaining Institutional approval and written informed consent from all patients, 60 patients ASA I/II, aged 20-50 in this study. They were randomly classified into two groups, Group I (LT) and Group II (LMA).
Results: The first attempt success rate in securing the airway with LT was 80.0% and the success rate with LMA was 86.6%. The time taken for securing the airway with LT was 37.76 + 5.27 and with LMA was 29.26 + 4.22 sec.
Conclusion: Laryngeal tube is superior to LMA in providing a better airway seal.
