 Anesthesia Must be Carefully Given, Says Leading Doc

One of the leading anesthetists in the state, Dr Murali Chakravarthy urged doctors to take extreme care when giving anesthesia to patients following an increasing number of deaths due to errors made during surgeries.

Dr Chakravarthy, who is the chief consultant for department of Anesthesia, critical care and pain relief at Fortis Hospital, said that anesthesia is an enigmatic part of the surgery both for the doctor and the patient.

He was speaking at the launch of a new book, Protocols in Anesthesia, which attempts to provide doctors with a list of protocols to be followed in order to minimize errors during a surgery.

"Anesthesia has been something of an enigma, be it to the patients or doctors. Sometimes, a person who is fit for surgery cannot be operated upon because he or she is unfit for anesthesia. Moreover, the sleep induced by anesthesia is much more similar to a drug induced reversible coma rather than sleep. For all these reasons, administration of anesthesia needs to be handled with extreme care", he said.
