Intranasal surgery was done by consultant Otorhinolaryngologist and before extubation patients of both groups were placed in lateral decubitus position with head down, after suctioning of secretions and blood, throat packs were removed, an appropriate size Guedel airway
was placed in the oral cavity and patients assigned to group-A were extubated fully awake while patients in group-B were extubated during deep anaesthesia by the researcher.
All patients were easily ventilated, only one of them needed Guedel airway

or a laryngeal mask airway in infants and children," Journal of Anaesthesiology Clinical Pharmacology, vol.
Bag and mask ventilation with a Guedel airway
in situ was difficult and oxygen saturations could not be maintained above 75% with a two-anaesthetist technique.
Insert a Guedel airway
and ventilate the patient manually with a face mask while waiting for more experienced help.
After loss of consciousness bag-mask ventilation was attempted which was difficult, requiring a Guedel airway
and two-person technique.
A correctly sized oropharyngeal airway (Guedel airway
) may be used in the deeply sedated patient to help maintain an open airway.

After induction it was immediately apparent that high pressures were required for bag-mask ventilation (45 cm[H.sub.2]O) which did not improve after Guedel airway
