Anesthesia is what physicians use to control pain during a surgery or procedure using a medicine called anesthetics. It can help control breathing, blood pressure, blood flow, and heart rate. Anesthesia can be used to relax patients, block pain, make the patient sleepy or forgetful, or make you sleep before surgery. However, the dosage needed for each patient will vary. Anesthesiology is a precise science requiring doctors to take the patient’s medical history into account. When they make an error, the results can be disastrous.

Anesthesia errors can happen during surgery, but most are recognized and corrected so patients rarely, if ever, learn about them. Mistakes are usually discovered after a patient dies or a severe problem is identified after surgery. Some errors that can commonly occur include the following:
Having too little anesthesia is also a common problem that can cause a condition known as anesthesia awareness, where the patient wakes up during the surgery itself. However, while they might be conscious, they are also often paralyzed and unable to speak, living through the horrifying trauma of feeling their surgeries. According to some estimates, around 21,000 to 42,000 Americans experience anesthesia awareness each year.
