Abstract

Central oxygen pipeline failure is not a common problem. In our theatre complex compressed air got into the oxygen line while five surgeries were going on under general anaesthesia, causing hypoxia. The problem was identified in time and corrective measures were taken before any harm was done to the patients. The way in which this freak accident happened is described.
