Anesthesia is used to avoid pain in patients during surgery and other procedures. They are intended for minor interventions, such as repairing a tooth, during the process of delivery or colonoscopies. In other cases, you may need an anesthesiologist, a doctor who specializes in administering anesthesia.

Any medical work has its risks, even if done fairly. The habit and commitment of these risks are affected by the health status, age or lifestyle of each patient. The risk of complications and death associated with anesthesia is closely related to the patient’s age and physical condition. 

As far as the measure employed by the managers is concerned, they are reliable, the risk of difficulties are unpredictable, capable of causing discomfort, which usually happen after its effect.

Generally speaking, the most difficult anesthetic difficulties are related to the cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems.

Consequences of Anesthesia Mala Praxis

Generally, patients who undergo sedation usually suffer certain states of discomfort or discomfort, causing dizziness, fatigue, and in more serious cases, death. The risk of death is approximately one in two hundred thousand patients, and complications are often multi-causal, human errors and organizational factors contribute to it.

On the other hand, depending on the condition in which the patient requires the use of anesthetic drugs, leaves as consequences:  

  • Sore throat, hoarseness, difficulty swallowing, sometimes appear after inserting a device into the throat or trachea to ensure breathing during anesthesia. Very rarely, they require supervision, for example due to a vocal cord injury.
  • It causes nerve, muscle and skin lesions, supplied in a prolonged position on the operating table, which involves compression and cause temporary numbness or reversible paralysis in virtually all cases.
  • It causes memory problems, decreased concentration capacity, which occur during the days following the operation and disappear spontaneously.

Despite the efforts, the use of high technologies, standards in invasive and non-invasive monitoring in anesthesia and intensive care, supply errors continue to occur and even in the best centers in the world; however, it is a call for vigilance. 

Complications associated with the use of anesthesia 

Currently, the risks are greater in patients suffering from any pathology, presents difficulties related to the use of anesthesia, those from possible complications of the airway, control of breathing, and control of the hemodynamic functions of the patient.

Some people experience a certain confusion when they wake up from anesthesia. In pregnant women and children under three years old, it is advisable to avoid anesthesia whenever possible, and use it only for necessary interventions, so it is advisable that in pregnant patients, unless emergency or oncological procedures, wait until the baby is born.

On the other hand, the anesthesiologist is in charge of making a proper evaluation of the patient, that agrees to know if the discomfort that he suffers or the medical methods that he follows, would manage to interfere with the anesthesia and make this means contraindicated in his specific case.
