Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Patients with the more common connective tissue disorders require surgical operations more frequently than has been realized. They may present the anaesthetist with many potential problems. A few minutes of careful questioning and examination pre-operatively may prevent a tragic situation. A history of drug therapy is essential pre-operative information, particularly since many of these patients will need augmentation or coverage with steroid drugs. The anaesthetist must be aware of the patient's general state of health and must search for evidence of pulmonary, cardiac or haematological abnormalities.
