Bottom Line: We encountered few complications.Our study demonstrates that the size 1 I-gel provided an effective and satisfactory airway as the size 1 ProSeal LMA.It may be a good alternative supraglottic airway device for use in small infants and neonates.

ABSTRACT

Purpose: The size 1 I-gel, recommended for small infants and neonates weighing 2-5 kg, has recently been released. There are no prospective studies available that assess the insertion conditions, sealing pressures, or ventilation quality of it. This study was designed to compare the performance of recently released size 1 I-gel with size 1 ProSeal LMA.

Methods: Fifty infants and neonates, ASA I-II were included in this prospective, randomized, and controlled study. Patients were divided into two groups for placing I-gel or ProSeal LMA. The primary outcome was airway leak pressure, and secondary outcomes included insertion time, insertion success and conditions, initial airway quality, fiberoptic view of the larynx, and complications.

Results: There were no significant differences in terms of airway leak pressure between the I-gel (27.44 ± 5.67) and ProSeal LMA (23.52 ± 8.15) (P = 0.054). The insertion time for the I-gel was shorter (12.6 ± 2.19 s) than for the ProSeal LMA (24.2 ± 6.059 s) (P = 0.0001). Insertion success and conditions were similar in groups. We encountered few complications.

Conclusion: Our study demonstrates that the size 1 I-gel provided an effective and satisfactory airway as the size 1 ProSeal LMA. It may be a good alternative supraglottic airway device for use in small infants and neonates. This trial is registered with: ClinicalTrials.gov NCT01704118.

Mentions: Fifty-seven patients were eligible for the study. Seven of the patients were excluded from the study because they did not meet the inclusion criteria. Fifty patients completed the study, and no patients were excluded from the analysis (Figure 1). There were no significant differences between the two groups in terms of demographic data, ASA status, and the need for additional doses of propofol (Table 1). The types of surgery consisted of 41 unilateral inguinal hernia repairs, 7 bilateral inguinal hernia repairs, 1 rectal biopsy, and 1 cystoscopy.
