Abstract: 

Aim and Background: There is a worldwide epidemic of obesity. For anesthesiologists this means that we will be seeing an increasing number of these patients as they come to the operating rooms for a variety of procedures. The purpose of this study is to compare the airway reflexes after propofol or isoflurane anesthesia in overweight patients.
Methods and Materials: Fifty patients enrolled in this study and randomly allocated to propofol or isoflurane for maintenance of anesthesia. T1 (the time interval from discontinuation of maintenance anesthesia to face movement) and T2 (the time interval between face movement to extubation) were measured.
Findings: The average time to the first reflex in the propofol group was 10.23±3.21 min and in the isoflurane group was 9.96±4.11min (P=0.67). The average time of T2 in the propofol group was 6.72±2.22 min and in the isoflurane group was 10.12±3.22 min (P=0.57).
Conclusions: Maitenance of anesthesia with either isoflurane or propofol shows comparable return of airway reflexes in overweight patients under general anesthesia.
