Abstract: Background: The purpose of the current study was to examine the haemodynamic parameters of three different i-gel insertion strategies, including standard, rotational, and triple airway maneuver, in persons with paralysis who had undergone anaesthesia both before and after i-gel insertion. 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 evaluated for Hemodynamic response before and after I-Gel insertion. Results: In the present study, there was no significant difference between age (P = 0.422), gender distribution (P = 0.466), weight (P = 0.395), height (P=0.321) and BMI (P = 0.660) among three groups. Similarly, there was no statistically significant difference in Heart rate, Systolic blood pressure, Diastolic pressure, and Mean arterial pressure among all the three groups. Also almost all haemodynamic variables were comparable before and after i-gel insertion between all the groups (P>0.05). Conclusion: Our study concluded that haemodynamic variables like HR, SBP, DBP and MAP were comparable before and after i-gel insertion between all three groups.
