My aunt had some sort of life-threatening complication during the delivery of my cousin.  They ended up having to do an immediate, do not pass go, do not get central anesthesia on board, C-section before both she and my cousin bled to death.  They both survived, but my uncle says he still can't get the sounds of her shrieks out of his mind.

Hahahaha. I had this happen to me. They didn't get very far, though--I was awake and I stopped them. The guy giving me the shot told me that I had a "backbone like an armadillo" as he gave it a second try.

The first C-section, the guy gave up entirely and put me under.

As a pregnant woman due to (most likely) have a C-section in August, may I just say

AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

And then there's the link in the sidebar about the Brazilian doctors that tore the head off of a baby during a complicated delivery.

I'm WTF'ing all over that page.

My cousin has a nice deep dent in her forehead from a forceps delivery. Well, not like it caved her head in, but it's a hell of a scar. She was born in 1960.

Seen that before. Ive seen LOTS of shiat in the ER...but that made me regret volunteering for OR duty for sure..and made me REAL glad i was wearing a mask.

Think of the population crisis we'd be having if it weren't for alcohol!

/On the other hand, a lot of people probably wouldn't be doing any farking without alcohol, so maybe it balances out.

a c-section without anestesia? how is that different from a vivisection?

This happened to my wife as well, when our daughter was born. (Not the armadillo comparison; the whole "hey, I can feel that" thing, prompting the doc to just put her under.)

There is no good way to give birth.  Every method is a painful, violent, shrieking, gory, shiatty mess.

The first C-section I was involved with, I stood around and wondered why everyone was wearing scrub booties over their shoes.  Every step in a puddle on your way to work and then walk around with a *squish* *squish* sounding wet shoe for half the day?

Image that with amniotic fluid and blood.

I looked like a astronaut on my second c-section.

My wife's great uncle was pulled out with forceps, and the doctor used so much force he made him retarded. He has the mentality of a six year old. It's amazing the stuff doctors got away with before everyone started suing them.

My first c-section went pretty well.  The spinal took like two tries.

My second c-section...I wish they had just put me under.  I gave up counting after the fifth attempt.  Anesthesiologist eventually called for help, and <i>that</i> guy got it in on the first try.  (I don't know the original dude was incompetent; I have not just a curve in my spine but apparently it's also twisted.  They had to use an epidural setup to get my spinal in.)  It took longer to get the spinal placed than to perform the actual surgery.

But I still count myself lucky.  My best friend from high school had a c-section with her first.  She'd had an epidural earlier in labor and it only took on one side.  Evidently she never told anybody, so she ended up with an excruciating surgery.  I always tell people to speak up when getting anesthesia just because of this.

I woke up during sinus surgery. It was horrible, like something out of Marathon Man.   I did - with an incredible effort of willpower, manage to open one eye and croak out a tiny, "OW ..."     The surgical team totally freaked out. I remember someone saying "Well GIVE HER MORE!"

Annnnnnd ... then I woke up some time later than they originally intended.

It happens - in a crashing patient who's fetus is endangered, administering general or IV anesthesia can kill mom, and then the baby.

However, in this case, it's sheer incompetence. He should have known to administer a second epidural dose. There was no danger to the fetus from TFA.

Coming out of anesthesia is awful. That's the only time I've ever had it, during that C-section. It's like your entire brain has to reboot. I couldn't even remember where i was, even though i was in a hospital bed and i'd been in labor for like 20 hours before they knocked me out. Duhhhhhh..........

My son was hilarious when he woke up from wisdom teeth extraction, but damn, it took him hours to fully regain his senses. He kept looking at his watch but couldn't focus on it.

Doctors do that shiat.  I was having a lady part operation and told the guy twice that the anesthesia hadn't kicked in yet, but he didn't believe me and off he went anyway.  Dentists are great for it too.  Some of us take longer to process anesthesia, epidurals, and the like.  Listen to us.

The only memory I have of my last endoscopy is waking up and realizing I was deep throating a giant metal tube. I started coughing violently before they managed to conk me out again.

As someone who is booked for a c-section in 3 weeks I am NOT getting a kick...

Especially since I had spinal surgery a couple years back and have been told there might be issues with administering the anesthesia properly.

fark, I hope not.

And this careless farkin OLD doctor has the NERVE to try to get away with it  and to try to "Quash" his conviction and bargain down his suspension from 9 to 5 months.

This guy should be busted down to the hospital laundry room, and NEVER allowed to touch a patient again.
 
2014-05-12 07:06:48 PM
Anaesthesia is hard. They want to give you enough to make you unconscious but not enough to kill you. It's a narrow window. As for this doctor he's just an asshole. Even the first c-sections had better anaesthetics.
 
2014-05-12 07:27:07 PM
When I was in nursing school I helped out with a c-section where the lady wasn't quite numbed yet. The doctor cut through the skin and muscle, that was okay. Then she popped out the uterus and gave it a little pinch with the tweezers... just to make sure. And the lady screamed AHHHHHH! The doctor's eyebrows rose over her face mask and she glared at the anesthesiology resident in the most withering way. He was like uhhh, gulp, fumble, crank crank crank on the epidural machine and the next time the doctor poked the uterus the patient didn't notice. Only then did she take the scalpel to it. No problem then.

This is what happens when you SMOKE WEED.

It drastically raises your tolerance to anesthesia.

If you ever have an operation, TELL YOUR DOCTOR YOUR USAGE.

Yeah, I tell the mammals that I dint get to sleep until they are able to sleep, and I tell them to speak up about a patchy epidural precisely because I want to be confident we can use it if we go to surgery. It's always when the epidural is unreliable that this happens, so I figure fiddling with it until it's right wars away evil spirits.

Generally pulling out the epidural catheter a cm or two and rebolusing will do the trick.

And the anesthesiologist in this case may have some liability too. As the only other MD in the room they have the responsibility to say "stop" and not allow the surgeon to proceed until it's appropriate. Unfortunately most hospitals don't have a culture where anesthesiologist have both the power and confidence to do so, but when shiat hits the fan, who cares about the surgeon's ego, WE are in charge.

You can always at least give midazolam so mom doesn't remember. And if the mom is so hypotensive they are unconscious, you HAVE to establish an airway anyway. But it's rare that the situation is so dire that you can't induce anesthesia. I've always been able to in the few crash sections I attended.

Ketamine. Midazolam in RSI doses of 5-10mg rapid push followed by 2.5-5 q5 minutes till total sedation will worsen hypotension
