Dr. Anand Prem M.D's Expert Contributions
  • Can you have general anesthesia without intubation?

    In short "Yes" but depends on several different factors - type and location of surgery, length of surgery, position of the patient during surgery ( on back vs on stomach or side) other contributing patient factors ( reflux, obesity, patient with potentially difficult airway anatomy) and the need for muscle relaxation for the surgery. Laryngeal mask airway can be used in some cases instead of a standard endotracheal tube. Has to be discussed with your anesthesiologist for more specific answer. A. Prem, MD. READ MORE
