Chapter 7 covers complications of anaesthesia, and complications during anaesthesia and in the perioperative period are related to the patient’s coexisting disease, to the surgical disease, the surgical procedure, and to anaesthesia, as well as that certain medical conditions, such as heart disease, pulmonary disease, endocrine disease and nervous system disease increase the risk of complications from anaesthesia. This selection of papers aims to describe the incidence and type of complications arising during and after anaesthesia and surgery, and a broad range of interventions aiming at reducing these complications. Though some answers are presented and some interventions proposed, most of these interventions need to be further researched in large clinical high quality trials.
