    The ‘I-gel' is a truly anatomical supraglottic device. It is made of medical grade thermoplastic elastomer, which is soft, gel-like and transparent. It is a non-inflatable cuff and fits snugly onto the perilaryngeal framework, mirroring the shape of the epiglottis, aryepiglottic folds, piriform fossae, perithyroid, pericricoid, posterior cartilages and spaces. After obtaining written informed consent, 60 adult patients of both sexes belonging to ASA Grade I and II planned various elective procedures lasting for 45min to 1hour duration, were randomly selected. The study group was divided in two groups of 30 each (n=30): Group I (30 cases where I- gel was used) Group II (30 cases where cLMA was used). Systolic blood pressure has been compared in both the groups at before induction, after induction and after insertion at 1 min, 2 min, 3 min, 4 min, 5 min, 20 min, 35 min and 50 min and is found to be statistically non-significant.
