Abstract

Among the reported anesthesia-related complications, neonates and infants, emergency surgery, and combined respiratory problems (supraglottic airway obstruction, unplanned extubation, difficult intubation) remain high risk factors. Airway and respiratory management remain a major factor in complications and death from pediatric anesthesia. At the same time, oral and maxillofacial surgery are prone to complications and adverse events, which makes the importance of accurate management in pediatric oral and maxillofacial surgery more important.
