This study is designed to determine whether a functional difference exists between the laryngeal mask airway (LMA)-Classic™ and i-gel in anesthetized children who have received neuromuscular blockade.

Condition Intervention
Endotracheal Intubation Device: i-gel airway (Intersurgical Ltd., Wokingham, England) Device: Laryngeal Mask Airway

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment

Further study details as provided by Jin-Tae Kim, Seoul National University Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • airway leak pressure [ Time Frame: within 5 min of insertion of each device ]
    Airway leak pressure was determined by adjusting the expiratory valve of the breathing circle to 40 cmH2O (fixed fresh gas flow 3 L/min) and recording the pressure when equilibrium was reached.

Enrollment: 108
Study Start Date: February 2011
Study Completion Date: July 2011
Primary Completion Date: July 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Device: i-gel airway (Intersurgical Ltd., Wokingham, England)
    supra-glottic airway device
    Device: Laryngeal Mask Airway
    supra-glottic airway device
