  Oral and maxillofacial related injuries and hazards during anaesthesia

Show Summary Details

Preview

Major catastrophic sequelae such as death or permanent injury following general anaesthesia are thankfully rare. However, inadvertent damage to teeth, intraoral soft tissues, and morbidity associated with throat packs and nasal intubation represent some of the most commonly reported oral and maxillofacial related injuries. This chapter will be limited to discussion of these injuries. For a wider discussion of the hazards and complications of anaesthesia, the reader should consult the literature.
