General anesthesia (GA)

General anesthesia (GA) remains the most commonly employed technique.

  1. Advantages include protection of the airway, assurance of adequate ventilation, and rapid induction of anesthesia with controlled depth and duration.
  2. Disadvantages include loss of airway reflexes, which increases the risk of aspiration during routine or emergency surgery, potential adverse hemodynamic consequences of general anesthetics, and potentially increased time for recovery.
