The effect of mini-dose suxamethonium to facilitate laryngeal mask airway insertion under propofol anaesthesia

Shahin N Jamil,1 Vinay Singhal,2 S Kamran Habib3.

To asses effects of mini dose suxamethonium to facilitate laryngeal mask airway (LMA)
insertion and its post operative complications.
Patients and Methods
Sixty ASA 1 and 2 patients aged 15-55 years who were scheduled for various surgical
procedures were divided in two groups. Thirty patients received propofol (control group)
and thirty received suxamethonium 0.1 mgkg as a single bolus dose (study group). Total
dose of propofol, fasciculations, apnea, conditions during LMA insertion and
hemodynamic changes were recorded.
LMA insertion was easy with lesser swallowing, gagging or coughing in group B. Less
amount of propofol was required in group B, hence reduced side effects of propofol were
observed in this group. Myalgia was present in 10% patients given suxamethonium.
The combination of propofol with mini dose suxamethonium provided a significantly
better and economical method for LMA insertion. (Rawal Med J 2010;35: ).

Key words: Mini dose suxamethonium, LMA, propofol.
