Background and AimsThis randomized, open label experimental study was undertaken to observe the ease of insertion, time taken for insertion of LMA supreme and ease of gastric tube insertion. Thirty adult patients undergoing elective surgery under general anaesthesia were assessed. Ease of insertion of LMA supreme and Gastric Tube was assessed with number of attempts required for insertion. Time taken for insertion and post-operative side effects of LMA supreme insertion were also observed. The demographic profile of patients was comparable. In our study out of 30 patients, LMA supreme was inserted in first attempt in 27 (90.00%) patients, only 3 (10.00%) patients required second attempt. Mean time taken for insertion of LMA supreme was 7.30±3.03 seconds. Gastric tube insertion was Easy in 29 (96.7%) and Impossible in 1 (3.33%). Hemodynamic response to insertion were similar in all patients and adverse effects were not significant. The LMA supreme takes 8 seconds for insertion, with post-operative sore throat in 1 (3.33%) patient after 24 hours of surgery. LMA supreme can be considered as preferred choice of airway for elective surgeries under general anaesthesia
