Abstract

An endotracheal tube is an integral part of general anaesthesia especially in long duration head and neck surgeries. Often, in such surgeries, the airway is shared by the surgeon and the anaesthetist. Any damage to the Endotracheal tube cuff may cause improper ventilation and airway contamination. We propose an algorithm through this case to prevent such complications and correct them if they happen.
