11) and many others have worked on gastric volume, gastric pH under general anaesthesia and also on critical volume and critical pH for occurrence of acid aspiration syndrome.
5 is responsible for the symptoms of acid aspiration syndrome, but gastric pH more than 2.
So proton pump inhibitors Omeprazole, Pantoprazole and Esomeprazole can be tried to avoid chances of acid aspiration syndrome under general anaesthesia even in elective operative procedures.
15Our results are in consistence with Cruickshank RH et al who concluded that omeprazole has a role in prophyla- xis against acid aspiration syndrome when given intra- venously 1 hour before surgery as it increased pH of gastric content.

Interpretation & conclusions: Sodium rabeprazole 20 mg given orally a night before surgery provided adequate prophylaxis for acid aspiration syndrome at the time of induction of anaesthesia and duodeno-gastric reflux significantly affected both the pH and volume of gastric contents.
While evaluating the usefulness of sodium rabeprazole as prophylaxis for acid aspiration syndrome, the impact of duodenogastric refluxate on gastric pH and volume has not been reported in previous studies.
Oral rabeprazole 20 mg administered a night before elective surgery, provided adequate prophylaxis for the acid aspiration syndrome at the time of induction of anaesthesia excluding samples contaminated with duodeno-gastric reflux.
