Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pulmonary edema may develop in healthy patients after anesthesia. Even in adult patients it is important to ascertain the depth of anesthesia before extubation. Too early extubation can result in laryngospasm, followed by increased inspiratory effort and significant rises in pulmonary capillary pressure, which may create fluid movements in the lung resulting in pulmonary edema.
