In this chapter we have reviewed the complicated medical conditions that exist in many head and neck surgical patients. Common surgical procedures that frequently require postoperative monitoring and several infectious disorders requiring intensive care unit admission were also reviewed. Intensivists need to be familiar with these procedures and diseases. Collaboration with the surgical specialist is required to optimize patient care.
