Some medical surgeries require administration of general anaesthesia. This aims to relax the skeletal muscles and loss of reflex control of the nervous system. Skilled anaesthetists usually perform the procedure in consultation with the patient and the dental or medical practitioner who is performing the surgery. However, anesthetic accidents do occur which leads to disastrous effects on the patient, including death and permanent brain damage. An anaesthetist should follow stringent directions. It can result in negligence if the guidelines are not adhered properly.
Anaesthetic accidents can be quite traumatic for the patient. They even suffer from severe psychological problems that affect the quality of life. Patients develop fear of doctors, treatment and hospitals and this affects their future treatment.
