Anesthesia refers to a temporary, medically-induced state that causes any combination of amnesia, inability to feel pain, loss of skeletal muscle reflexes, loss of responsiveness and decreased stress response. It is most often used before medical procedures such as surgery.
Anesthesia mistakes occur when a medical professional is negligent or incompetent, or when equipment is defective. They can trigger serious permanent damage to the brain, cause physical injury, and possibly even result in death.
