It has been suggested that anaesthetic mortality has decreased in the last two decades and is currently very low, ranging from to 10 per 10 administered anaesthetics [].However, insight into the contribution of anaesthesia to peri‐operative mortality is important to anaesthetists, to.

In Canada, the risk factors associated with death within 7 days of anaesthesia were analysed in a study involving surgical procedures. 25 There were 71 deaths per patients, and differences in anaesthetic practice were of much less importance in contributing to death than were age, physical status and the type of surgery.

Death associated with anaesthetic procedures is rare, deaths anaesthesias. However, each case gives rise to discussion about causality and who is to blame.

Prospective studies are few, and comparison between them is difficult because of the use of different definitions of anaesthesia related death. MORTALITY risk associated with anesthesia has been the subject of extensive research for many decades.1–5 In a landmark study involving 10 academic medical centers andsurgical patients in the United States during –, Beecher and Todd6 found that the anesthesia-related death rate was 64 deaths perprocedures, varying markedly by anesthetic agents, types of providers.

With respect to safety, he noted that the incidence of death associated with anaesthesia was per of the population, which was times higher than the incidence of deaths.

"A Study of the Deaths Associated with Anesthesia and Surgery," which appeared in the July issue of Annals of Surgery in my first month as an anesthesia resident. [7] I remember the anger in Dr. Dripps' voice as he refuted the data, especially the statement that the study "strongly suggests an inherent toxicity" in the neuromuscular.

Most deaths from regional anesthesia (70%) occurred among women who had epidural anesthesia; the remaining 30% were associated with spinal anesthesia. These deaths usually resulted from local anesthetic toxicity or an inadvertent high spinal or epidural block. Four deaths (3%) were related to complications of parenteral opioids or sedatives.

There were major complications associated with anaesthesia occurring during or within 24 hours after anaesthesia (incidence per ), among these 67 were followed by death and 16 by coma. The incidence of deaths and comas totally attributable to anaesthesia.

In most cases the cause is easily identified and the problem promptly resolved. However, in some the cause may be rare or obscure. Under such circumstances, attempting to initiate appropriate supportive therapy and to consider a large differential diagnosis in a comprehensive manner may lead to delays which can put a patient at risk.
