A child with respiratory tract infection is given anaesthesia. All of the following are likely complications, except:
|A||Increased respiratory tract secretions|
|C||Increased chances of bleeding.|
|D||Increased halothane toxicity|
Increased halothane toxicity
a. Children with respiratory tract infection have very highly reactive airways so can have excessive secretions, laryngospasm, bronchospasm.
b. Hyperemic tissue is always more prone for bleeding. Halothane is bronchodilator and inhibit airway reflexes so beneficial in such cases.
