Özet

Aim: When N2O is used for general anaesthesia, it diffuses into the air-filled endotracheal cuff causing the cuff pressure to rise by over inflating the cuff, which results in tracheal damage. This study aimed to estimate changes in the endotracheal-cuff pressure with time during oxygen-air-and oxygen-N2O-induced anaesthesia and to determine its sore throat and hoarseness incidence.
