  Anaesthesia for nasal and antral surgery

Show Summary Details


Nasal and antral surgery are common procedures usually performed under general anaesthesia. They often produce blood in the nasopharynx and protection of the airway is key. Many of these procedures are performed as day case surgery, and it is therefore important to use an anaesthetic technique that has minimal residual postoperative psychomotor effects. The aim of this chapter is to cover the principles of general anaesthesia for nasal and antral surgery, to mention briefly some of the local anaesthetic techniques used, and to discuss in more detail the techniques that are used for specific procedures.
