Background and Aim: The importance of supraglottic airway devices is soaring high as an aid to intubation and a means to ventilation. Proseal is a modification of classic LMA while Ambu auragain is a newer perilaryngeal sealer. The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of the devices in view of insertion parameters. Methodology: Study Design: A prospective, randomised study. A total 100 patients of ASA grade I or II, aged 18-65 years, were randomly allocated into two groups of 50 each. In group I (n=50) ambu aura gain was used and in group II (n= 50) PLMA was used. Both the devices were compared in relation to insertion parameters, haemodynamic changes and complications. Observations and Results: Ambu aura gain was easier to insert (p-0.019), requiring less time for insertion (11.6 versus 13.4 seconds) with p-0.008. Ease of insertion of nasogastric tube was easier with group I (p-0.014). Other parameters and post op complications were comparable. Conclusion: Ambu aura gain aids easy and rapid insertion along with easy insertion of nasogastric tube as compared with PLMA.
