Background: Although postoperative early airway complications are rarely observed, when they do develop, fatal results such as brain damage and cardiac arrest may occur. The Royal College of Anaesthetists and Difficult Airway Society investigated airway complications developing during anaesthesia over a period of 12 months within the context of the Fourth National Audit Project (NAP4) study. Inspired by that multicentre research project, this study aims to identify early airway complications that can develop in relation to anaesthesia induction in our hospital.
