Any attempt at intubation will cause many cardiovascular responses and the major concern during this time is to attenuate the
same. Similar response is seen during procedures on Larynx in microlaryngeal surgery which produces an intense cardiovascular
stimulation during suspension laryngoscopy and intubation.
AIM OF STUDY
Supraglottic jet ventilation versus conventional endotracheal ventilation in minor laryngeal surgeries. To evaluate the
haemodynamic response in supraglottic jet ventilation and conventional intubation in minor laryngeal surgeries.
METHODS
Patients were randomised to 2 Groups: 30 patients in each group; Group A - in whom supraglottic jet ventilation was planned
and Group B - in whom endotracheal intubation was planned.
RESULT
The haemodynamic response in terms of increase in MAP and HR is significantly more with endotracheal intubation than with
supraglottic jet ventilation.
CONCLUSION
Our study showed that supraglottic jet ventilation showed a better haemodynamic stability when compared to conventional
endotracheal intubation in patients undergoing minor laryngeal surgeries. Statistical scores were also in favour of the patients
treated with supraglottic jet ventilation based on the p values.
