    Background: In laparoscopic surgical procedures, many clinicians recommend extra glottic airway devices as good alternatives to intubation. We compared the air-Q® and standard Endotracheal tube (ETT) during laparoscopic gynecological surgery regarding hemodynamics changes and respiratory parameters before, during, and after pneumoperitoneum. Methods: Following Institutional Review Board approval and written informed consent, 60 patients were randomly allocated into the air-Q group (n=30) or ETT group (n=30). The hemodynamic parameters and peak inspiratory pressure, lung compliance, were measured before, during, and after pneumoperitoneum. Results: There were no significant differences between the two groups regarding demographic data, hemodynamic parameters ware significantly changed in EET group, Peak inspirat.. View More»
