BACKGROUND Our ability to predict respiratory compromise during general anesthesia in a child with an anterior mediastinal mass is limited. Two prior reports have found a correlation between adequacy of ventilation during general anesthesia and the tracheal cross-sectional area obtained from computed tomograms (computed tomography [CT] scans). These and other reports have suggested that pulmonary function tests may provide additional information regarding anesthetic risks, but no studies have… CONTINUE READING
