Abstract :

Background and Aims:-Neonates and infants are prone to oxygen desaturation during the induction of general anesthesia.Pharyngeal oxygen insufflation has been shown to delay the onset and severity of desaturation during apnea.We took this comparative study with the hypothesis that Oxiport Blade delays the time of onset as well as severity of desaturation as compared to Miller Blade.Material and Methods:-Eighty neonates and infants undergoing general anesthesia with endotracheal intubation were recruited and randomly assigned into two groups:-Oxiport or Miller.(Laryngoscopy performed with Oxiport or Miller Blade respectively).Results were observed in terms of lowest SPO2 attained during Intubation with each Blade, time for 1% desaturation from baseline, desaturation rate, time for intubation and Heart rate.Results:-Data from 80 patients were available for final analysis: Oxiport(n=40)-Group O and Miller(n=40)-Group M.Mean lowest SPO2 attained during laryngoscopy in Group O was 97.772.81 and with Group M was 92.423.71 with a P-value<0.001.The Rate of Saturation achieved in Group O was 0.0910.018 sec as compared to 0.3420.122 sec in Group M and p value was <0.001 .The time for 1% desaturation from baseline in Group O was 17.693.18 sec as compared to 10.4 2.09 sec in Group M with p value<0.001.The time for intubation and average heart rate were comparable in both the groups.Conclusion:-Apnoeic Laryngeal Oxygen insufflation with Oxiport Blade decreases the incidence and severity of desaturation during intubation in neonates and infants.
