A prospective comparative analysis comparing the I-GEL and ILMA supraglottic bronchioles for blind endotracheal intubation

Author(s):
Dr. K. Pavan Kumar and Dr. Prudhveeraj Harshavardhan
Abstract:
Objectives and Background: This study evaluates the effectiveness of the I-GEL and ILMA supraglottic airway devices as conduits for emergency ventilatory devices and blind endotracheal intubation in challenging intubation scenarios, while also comparing the insertion timings of each device.
Material and Methods: This study used a comparative prospective research design. The study was conducted from January 2012 to December 2012 at the Department of Orthopedics, ANNAII Medical College and Hospital, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. Forty patients were involved in this study. This study, which was approved by the institutional ethical committee, had 40 patients undergoing elective surgery while under general anesthesia. Written, freely given consent was given by each subject.
Results: Demographics, ease of insertion, number of attempts and duration for SAD insertion, number of attempts and length for ETT insertion, failure, and postoperative sore throat and dysphasia were compared using chi-square and Fisher's exact tests.
Conclusion: There are others who contend that when it comes to emergency rescue ventilation and blind endotracheal intubation, ILMA is a better option than I-GEL.
