Aspiration of gastric contents under anesthesia; a review and clinical study.

Abstract
Aspiration of vomitus is one of the leading causes of anesthetic deaths. These deaths can be prevented only by proper evaluation of the patient preoperatively and assuming that any patient dealt with in emergency has a full stomach until proven otherwise. Preliminary observations on the incidence of "silent regurgitation and aspiration" in a series of patients anesthetized for elective operation indicated that by obtaining a smooth induction and preventing any respiratory obstruction during anesthesia, regurgitation and aspiration can be minimized.
