Anesthesia allergy

31 July, 2014

A woman who was scheduled to undergo surgery to remove a tumor in her uterus died of an alleged anesthesia allergy in Bangalore in August 2013. According to her relatives, the nurses in the OT came out a few minutes after they took her in for the surgery, and enquired if she suffered from epilepsy. When the family responded in the negative, the nurses told them that the lady was in a critical condition. On further investigation the family found that her heart had stopped and the hospital was transferring her to Fortis for further care. The lady was declared dead in the Fortis hospital ICU. The reason for her death is still under the scanner, and since the death has been deemed a medico legal case, her body has been sent for post mortem investigations.
