ABSTRACT
The study was conducted in 60 ASA I Children, 4-12 years of age, of either sex undergoing elective surgery. All patients were premedicated with I.V. Midazolam 0.02 mg/kg, Inj. Fentanyl 2g/kg and Glycopyrolate 0.05mg/kg. 10 minutes before surgery. Patients were randomly divided into two groups. Group S (SEVOFLURANE 8%+40% 02+60%N20) and Group P (I.V. Propofol 1%w/v). Centralization of pupils and miosis were used as end points for intubation. Anesthesia was maintained with O2, nitrous oxide and sevoflurane. Induction time, Quality of Intubation, Hemodynamic response and complications during endotracheal intubation in children with inhalational induction with Sevoflurane versus and complications during endotracheal intubation studied. Conclusion: In premedicated children both sevoflurane and propofol provides good quality of anesthesia for intubation. Induction time and Hemodynamic response was less in propofol than sevoflurane. Quality of intubating condition was better with propofol than sevoflurane. So Propofol is better than Sevoflurane for tracheal intubation in Children. However Sevoflurane is acceptable alternative in patients with difficult venous access.
