Anesthetic Risk and Complications in Veterinary Medicine

About this Research Topic

Veterinary practitioners have obligations to inform owners of the potential foreseeable and serious risks their animal might encounter during a surgery. Nevertheless, a third of veterinarians believe that the majority of their clients are worried about their animal while being anesthetized. Thus it is of outmost importance for clinicians and researchers to have information on the latest research findings, numbers, definitions, and figures on anesthetic risk.

However, providing simple numbers or figures to describe anesthetic risks is complicated. There is uncertainty if a complication or even death during a surgery is directly related to the anesthesia or due to other or secondary effects, and if secondary effects should be still counted as an anesthetic risk. But also the timing a complication or death occurs - during anesthesia or immediately after? - can be an uncertainty in defining the risk caused by anesthesia.

The latest studies are over 5 years old and it is time have a new look at the anesthetic risk assessment. This Research Topic aims to address, among others, the following topics:

• risk figures, risk scales and difficulties in assessing the risk in veterinary anesthesia
• factors increasing anesthetic risk whether animal-related, treatment-related, or otherwise
• recommendations, techniques, and therapeutics reducing anesthetic risk

We welcome any contributions - research, reviews, or perspectives - that advance and expand the field of the risk in veterinary anesthesia.
