DescriptionPulmonary aspiration is one of the most serious risks of general anesthesia and has been reported to occur in as many as 1 in 4000 cases of general anesthesia. Gastric ultrasound is an emerging point-of-care tool that provides bedside information on gastric content and volume. There have been a few factors which are thought to increase gastric size. Delayed gastric emptying such as caused by gastroparesis in Diabetes Mellitus is an example. Certain surgeries also cause gastroparesis. Other preoperative factors including pain, preoperative anxiety, and blood levels of estradiol or progesterone are less well studied.
