Airway Fire - ATOTW 353

An airway fire can be defined as a fire that occurs within a patient’s airway or that which involves an in-situ airway device or contiguous breathing circuit. Though uncommon event since the discontinuation of older more flammable anaesthetic agents, they are nonetheless associated with potentially devastating patient morbidity and mortality. An awareness of its risk factors is important for anesthesia providers in order to minimize its occurrence and to provide prompt and effective treatment should it arise.
