Abstract: Background: The present study was aimed to compare the Fibreoptic assessment of three different techniques of i-gel insertion i.e. standard, rotational, triple airway maneuver in anaesthetised paralysed adults. Material & Methods: A total of 150 patients were included in this Prospective Randomised Trial at Department of Anaesthesia, Dr. R.P.G.M.C. Kangra at Tanda during the study period. The patients were divided into 3 groups with 50 patients each. The patients in group A included standard technique, group B with rotational technique, and group C included triple airway maneuver. The three groups were graded after Fibreoptic assessment using the Brimacombe scale, which consists of a four-point scoring system. Results: In our study, in standard group fibreoptic assessment was grade 4 in 82% of the patients, grade 3 in 12% and grade 2 in 6%.In rotational group, fibreoptic assessment was grade 4 in 86% of the patients, grade 3 in 12% and grade 2 in 2%. In triple airway maneuver group fibreoptic assessment was grade 4 in 94% of the patients, grade 3 in 4% and grade 2 in 2%. There was no significant difference in fibreoptic assessment between three groups (P = 0.365). Conclusion: Present study concluded that all the three groups were comparable according to grading after Fibreoptic assessment using the Brimacombe scale.
