    Introduction: Airway management is an essential, but challenging skill in the field of anaesthesiology. Since many years, endotracheal tube has been in vogue for surgeries involving general anaesthesia. However, endotracheal extubation causes serious hemodynamic changes, which could result in several cardiovascular complications. Among several advanced techniques, Laryngeal Mask Airway (LMA) is a less invasive procedure, with similar therapeutic outcomes. This study was carried out to compare the hemodynamic responses between LMA and endotracheal tube extubation. Methodology: This study was done as a single blind randomized controlled trial among 60 normotensive individuals who underwent elective surgeries under general anaesthesia, with 30 participants in each group. Values of heart rate and blood pressure were recorded, while rate pressure pr.. View More»
