Complications of anesthesia

Complications of anesthesia include vomiting, respiratory arrest, collapse, thrombophlebitis.

Vomiting is prevented by a pre-narcotic fasting diet. If vomiting occurs, the head is given a lower position to relieve vomiting and the oral cavity is cleaned with tampons.

Respiratory arrest can be reflexive and due to intoxication in case of drug overdose. When breathing stops, anesthesia is stopped, released from fixation belts, lobelia, caffeine are injected subcutaneously or intravenously and artificial respiration is immediately started. For this, the tongue is pulled from the oral cavity, the chest limbs are taken forward, and then brought to the chest, thereby expanding and squeezing it rhythmically. In addition, you can take one limb aside, then press it against the body and press on the side of the chest wall with your palm. Sometimes a rhythmic pat on the chest wall is effective.
If the abdominal cavity was opened during surgery, a hand is inserted into it and the diaphragm is massaged, slightly pressing it and patting it with fingers.

Collapse often occurs in small animals and horses. With collapse, there is a sudden weakening of cardiac activity, cyanosis, dilated pupils, a weak pulse, and the cessation of bleeding from cut vessels. In this case, anesthesia is immediately stopped, caffeine and camphor or intravenous adrenaline are injected subcutaneously. Light rhythmic strokes of the palm of the chest massage the heart. The last measure in the event of collapse is an intracardial injection of adrenaline in the first 5 minutes after the cardiac arrest has stopped.

Thrombophlebitis occurs with errors in the technique of intravenous administration. This is prevented by the immediate infiltration of a 0.25-0.5% solution of novocaine in the tissue where the chloral hydrate solution has got.

Complications of anesthesia

  1. Complications of withdrawal from anesthesia.
    prolonged awakening and apnea - trembling - convulsions - respiratory and circulatory disorders - sensory disturbances in the limbs - hoarseness of the voice - swelling of the ligamentous apparatus - vomiting - muscle pain leading to cerebral edema.
  2. Anesthesia Types and stages of anesthesia
    General anesthesia, or anesthesia, is a state of the body that is characterized by a temporary shutdown of a person’s consciousness, pain sensitivity and reflexes, as well as a relaxation of skeletal muscle muscles caused by the action of narcotic analgesics on the central nervous system. Depending on the route of administration of narcotic substances into the body, inhalation and non-inhalation anesthesia is isolated. 1. Theories
  3. Difficulties and complications with obstetric benefits and operations with pelvic presentation of the fetus
    During the first stage of fetal extraction by the pelvic end (extraction to the umbilical ring) when performing traction and pressure with the hands of the obstetrician not in the groin folds, but on the hip, it can fracture and damage the skin, so you need to be well-versed in the correctness of the fetal grip by the inguinal fold . Difficulties (removing the fetus to the lower angle of the shoulder blades) may be
  4. Complications of maintaining anesthesia
    hypoxia and hypercapnia - develops when the airway is blocked by clots of mucus, blood, a foreign body, a violation of the tightness of the respiratory system, a decrease in oxygen concentration, the patient is forced to stand on the operating table, and an endotracheal tube falls out. - Hemodynamic disorders: hypotension, arrhythmia, etc., associated not only with anesthesia, but also with trauma
  5. Intracranial and orbital complications in paranasal sinusitis
    Acute and chronic inflammation of the nasal cavity and its adnexal lumps can cause a series of ocular and intracranial complications, which often lead to loss of vision, and sometimes end in the death of the patient. Orbital complications Orbital complications can occur as a result of the transition of the inflammatory process from the paranasal sinuses by contact, because eye socket from all
  6. Emergency conditions for complicated influenza
    D - ka: During an epidemic, the flu is diagnosed taking into account the epidemiological situation. Signs of severe flu and the development of complications: hyperthermia, adynamia, headache, tachycardia, dyspnea, oliguria, agitation, as well as a critical drop in body temperature due to a decrease in blood pressure and mental retardation (toxic shock), meningeal symptoms and convulsions (cerebral edema) increasing

  8. Complications of using the Swan Catheter - Ghana
    The Swan - Ganz catheter should never be inserted without undeniable evidence, and the data obtained with its help must be skillfully interpreted. Wrong decisions resulting from misinterpretation of data are the most common serious “complications” of this technique. In addition to the harmful effects of errors in obtaining or interpreting complication data
  9. Features of anesthesia in complicated births
    When planning childbirth, the following forms of uterine dysfunction are distinguished: pathological preliminary period, discoordination of labor, rapid labor, segmental dystocia, uterine tetanus. Delivery in patients with preeclampsia and with serious extragenital pathology is considered to be complicated. The pathological preliminary period is a kind of protective reaction of the pregnant woman’s body
    Clinic. The boil of the external auditory canal is characterized by pain in the ear, which sometimes radiates to the teeth, eye, occipital region and even the neck. Less commonly, they are felt throughout the head. The pain intensifies with any displacement of the outer part of the ear, during the movement of the lower jaw (chewing, talking), pressure on the tragus and pulling the auricle. In acute otitis media, headaches are more common.
  11. Complications of the use of double-lumen endobronchial tubes
    Severe complications when using double-lumen endobronchial tubes include: (1) hypoxemia if the tube is in the wrong position or is occluded; (2) traumatic laryngitis (especially when using a hooked tube); (3) rupture of the trachea or bronchi with excessive inflation of the bronchial cuff; (4) inadvertent fixation of the tube to the bronchus by ligatures during surgery (detected by
  12. Complications of pregnancy with uterine myoma. Prevention and treatment
    In patients with uterine myoma, referred to a low risk, pregnancy and childbirth usually occur without any special complications. In the presence of high-risk factors, a number of specific complications characteristic of uterine fibroids are observed, and there is also an increased frequency of nonspecific complications. The first, specific complications are as follows. 1. Malnutrition and secondary changes in myomatous
    Animals cope with childbirth on their own. They make a den, expel the fruits from the womb, tear their shells, bite the umbilical cord, warm the offspring in the den with the body and feed it with milk, possessing the instinct of procreation. A person is able to prevent the manifestation of instinct and where the participation of a person is greater (from pets in dogs and cats - an unjustified interference in
