Abstract

Laryngospasm is one of the most commonly occurring perioperative complication seen in the practice of every Anaesthesiologist. It can present with varying degrees of severity and presentation may not be the same in all individuals. There are several risk factors that can cause laryngospasm, knowledge of which can help in its prevention. Over the years, several researchers have published data on the prevention and management of the laryngospasm.
