Anaesthesia of choice for draining peritonsillar abscess:
|B||General anaesthesia with ketamine|
|C||General anaesthesia with propofol|
|D||General anaesthesia with thiopentone|
Peritonsillar abscess is best drained under local anaesthesia. General anaesthesia should be avoided as intubation is very difficult due to trismus and if the abscess is opened inside the patient can aspirate.
