Active pulmonary disease such as asthma and severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (often with continued heavy smoking) is a good example. A host of preexisting airway factors, from diseased teeth to congenital or traumatic anatomic abnormalities that may prevent easy intubation,32 can predispose to potential adverse outcomes, although supposedly ‘‘easy airway’’ patients33 may occasionally face the greatest danger due to the lack of recognition and appropriate preparation. Airway issues remain among the thorniest problems still unsolved in modern anesthesia practice,34 and appeals for improved equipment, techniques, and management strategies persist.

3% for abdominal surgery. Not surprisingly, cardiovascular surgery showed an approximate 20% risk for ‘‘any severe cardiac outcome,’’ particularly dysrhythmias. Abdominal surgery was a significant predictor for severe adverse cardiac and respiratory outcomes in general. Higher ASA PS classification was associated with increased probability for any severe adverse outcome, whereas advancing age was correlated as an independent predictor of a few. Obesity, smoking, and male gender were the other demographic predictors, particularly of respiratory adverse outcomes.
