Laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation, or insertion of a laryngeal mask airway may lead to an arousal response on the electroencephalogram. We studied whether more intense stimulation (laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation) causes a greater arousal response than less intense stimulation (laryngeal mask airway insertion). Thirty-four patients (ASA I–II) were anaesthetised with propofol 3−1, followed by vecuronium 0.15−1 and a propofol infusion of 10−1.h−1. Three minutes after induction of anaesthesia, either laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation (n = 18), or laryngeal mask airway insertion (n = 16) was performed. Laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation caused a significantly greater increase in blood pressure (but not heart rate) than laryngeal mask airway insertion (p < 0.05). Electroencephalogram responses were not different. More intense stimulation does not cause a greater arousal response during propofol anaesthesia.
