  Liberty is one of man's birth-rights, but it does not descend upon man automatically. It is gained by hard work and eternal vigilance. Lack of vigilance for a long time may spoil everything. Only who those are ever alert can enjoy the benefits of liberty.

  A mouth full of blood or secretions is the most dreaded nightmare for an anaesthesiologist during induction of general anaesthesia. An anaesthesiologist/emergency service provider encounters many a times oral cavity full of secretions, blood and blood clots that may hinder the effective bag mask ventilation and laryngoscopic view during intubation. Paediatric patients producing a lot of oral secretions due to crying, ENT surgeries like tonsils and adenoid resection, vallecular cyst, oropharyngeal carcinoma, FESS septoplasty, facial trauma, dental procedures all causes pooling of blood in the oral cavity.
