What Is Anesthesia & What Is an Accident?

Anesthesia is administered through anesthetics and is a way to block pain, relax a patient, and in some instances, induce unconsciousness. This intubated state is overseen by a trained anesthesiologist. Yet, all too common accidents occur because this professional does not recognize signs of error or administers the anesthetic improperly.

Types of anesthesia accidents:

  • Improper performance: When administered incorrectly, back disorders can occur like lumbago and sciatica; degeneration of intervertebral disc; musculoskeletal disorder and discomfort affecting the neck region

  • Overlooking patient monitoring: When problems occur monitoring a patient during surgery, anesthesia can affect prostate cancer or malignant neoplasms of the prostate; general and localized osteoarthrosis
  • Intubation problems: If complications arise while intubating the patient, accidents can occur like an umbilical hernia; discomfort with the abdomen and pelvis; appendicitis
