What happens when you have a laryngeal spasm after extubation?

Laryngospasm in the operating room is treated by hyperextending the patient's head and administering mechanical ventilations with 100% oxygen. In more serious cases it may require intubation. If orotracheal intubation is not possible a cricothyroidotomy is done to create an airway. In ear, nose and throat practices, it is treated by examining the patient in the office and reassuring the patient that laryngospasm resolves. Sometimes reflux medication is used to reduce the acidity in the stomach. The laryngeal spasm is actually a quite common side effect of anesthesia, and more commonly in cases involving tracheal extubation.
