Re: Bad Heart And Anesthesia

Obviously there are risk factors, and expert assessment and monitoring during surgery must be done by a competent person. These things often come down to a risk/benefit analysis, and these factors should be explained to your family member, so that he/she can make some contribution to the decision.These choices can be difficult, because mostly the doctors are talking in "probabilities" rather than precise outcomes. All the best to your family member and good luck.
