Patients were randomly assigned into either a SLIPA or LMA group for airway management during general anaesthesia using a computer-randomised table.
Six minutes following administration of propofol and remifentanil, SLIPA or LMA insertion was attempted by the anaesthetist (who was unaware of the targeted effect-site concentration of remifentanil).
SLIPA insertion was facilitated by a jaw thrust (performed by an assistant) in all patients (4).
Fifty-eight patients were enrolled in this study and randomly assigned to the SLIPA or LMA group.
The patients were manually ventilated through a facemask with 100% [O.sub.2] until the SLIPA or ETT had been inserted by a single experienced anaesthetist.
We compared the difference between OLP and PIP in the SLIPA group.
The PIP was higher in the ETT group than in the SLIPA group at 1 minute after intubation (P <0.05), but no significant difference was found thereafter.
Changes in PIP, OLP, and the difference between OLP and PIP in the SLIPA group are shown in Figure 1.
