Going under a general or local anaesthetic can be daunting for many patients.
Anaesthetic is administered by trained professionals, however, as with all medical procedures negligent mistakes can sometimes happen, which can lead to further problems or injury.
Issues or injuries that can occur are;
- Inappropriate anaesthetic causing pain during surgery
- Brain damage from lack of oxygen due to airways not being kept open
- Nerve damage caused by injections, epidurals and spinal blocks
- Failure to monitor blood pressure
