Medical Records Omitted
In my chart from the hospital there should be a graph of my heartbeat and respiration. I have a piece of one that shows a sharp drop to the bottom of the chart, but I can't read it. Could I have been walloped with Versed to the point that I now have brain hypoxia? I warned them that I have paradoxical reactions to anesthesia agents, were they trying to knock me down? I wasn't the slightest bit nervous or anxious prior to the Versed injection, but who knows what happened once they totally disconnected my brain. My memory is clear right up to the point that the CRNA took out my partial and shoved a tube down my throat. Is this when I crashed? I am including this chart here. This is also the chart which contains the fact that I was given an additional 4 mls of Versed post surgery. I was in the hospital for 7 HOURS for a 70 minute operation. My BP crashed to 80 over 30 for half an hour. They gave me 1400 cc of "Crystalloid" why is that? Here is a studySecondary Abdominal Compartment Syndrome After Severe Extrem... : The Journal of Trauma that shows how dangerous this is. What is 10cc of EBL? Why did the anesthesia stop so long after the surgery? Why in the hell was I given anesthesia at all? I wanted a nerve block and pain meds. There is absolutely no excuse for this! I had 2 mls of Versed preop, apparently 1 more ml at the start and 4 more before being carted to the PACU. They charged me for more, but since they refused to release my medication chart I have no idea. They don't show the Propofol injections, the timing of the Flurane gas, Benadryl, or any of the rest of it. I have no EKG charts, nothing.
