If extubated too early
Laryngospasm can occur if a patient is extubated before being fully awake. There are standard treatments for larygospasm that restore normal breathing patterns.
Yes, very much so! Particularly if you smoke, have an upper respiratory infection or a chronic cough. If possible, maybe your procedure may be done under IV sedation. All experienced anesthesiologists are skilled in reducing your incidence for laryngospams.
