Abstract

Surgeons who perform office surgery without the presence of personnel trained in anesthesia are responsible for both the surgery and the general condition of the patient. Thus the prevention and management of medical problems that may occur during the operation or in the recovery room become their concerns. Fortunately, medical problems arise infrequently. However, the anxiety of the moment may cloud important details of treatment; as a result, having a preconsidered plan is advised. This paper presents step-by-step outlines that provide safe and effective treatment plans for guiding the surgical team during the management of medical problems during office surgery.
