Anesthesia mistakes can result in serious complications
Anesthesia complications include hypoxic injuries, anaphylaxis (allergy), toxicities and failures to monitor. Anesthesiologists are responsible for the ABCs: airway, breathing and circulation. A failure to monitor from induction through extubation puts patients at risk.
Close monitoring of patients’ vital signs and careful, constant observation of patients are also essential. Serious patient injuries result when health care providers administer incorrect dosages or the wrong medications. They also result when patients experience adverse reactions to medications and health care providers are not watching closely. The health care staff is responsible for injuries to patients that occur under these circumstances.
