The administration of anesthesia during surgery, while highly important, may seem like a relatively minor step in the surgical process. The proper use of anesthesia, however, is highly technical and even slight errors can result in:
- Wrongful death
- Hypoxia (lack of oxygen resulting in brain injuries or death)
- Trauma if the patient awakes during surgery
- Stress to the autonomic system, resulting in an inability of the patient's body to acquire and utilize oxygen
