Anesthesia uses powerful sedatives and other medications to prepare patients for surgery. Property administered anesthesia can sedate patients and make complex surgeries easier, and safer, for both patients and doctors.
Unfortunately, things can go wrong. Patients can have reactions to common anesthetic medications. Sometimes these reactions are out of the blue, sometimes they result from an anesthesiologist failing to review the patient’s records. Anesthesia can also be over-administered or under-administered by the anesthesiologist, leading to health complications, surgical complications, and even death.
