Author(s): Dr. Suhaib Ahmed Khan

Abstract: Background: The most vital element in providing functional respiration is the airway. The present study was conducted to determine the pattern of usage of supraglottic airway devices among anesthesiologists. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 62 Pediatric anesthesiologists of both genders. Their qualification, area of practice, type of institution, experience and average daily cases were assessed. Complications arising from use of SGAD were also recorded. Results: 20 were practicing in rural and 42 in urban, 25 were MD, 20 were DA and 17 had fellowship, 26 were in college, 16 were private practitioner and 20 were in other. 32 had > 5years of experience and 32 had daily >5 patient consultation. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Commonly used SGADs was I- gel in 34, LMA classic reusable in 24, LMA classic disposable in 16, LMA ProSeal in 12, Ambu Aura- I in 10, LMA flex in 8 and laryngeal tube in 5. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Conclusion: Commonly used SGADs by anesthesiologists were I- gel, LMA classic reusable, LMA classic disposable, LMA ProSeal, Ambu Aura- I, LMA flex and laryngeal tube.
