anesthesia and heart attack

I recently ended up in the ER with a possible heart attack either right after or during anesthesia. I don't know exactly what happened as I was receiving the anesthesia but it led to "v tac" and I was unable to breathe. There is still question about what happened, maybe I never was fully sedated, or I awoke too early, I imagine a panic attack as well. After a very long day and many, many tests it appears I may have had a heart attack but it seems inconclusive. My question though is: What is the likelihood that I would have a similar reaction if I underwent anesthesia again? Thanks, tmgg

Re: anesthesia and heart attack

Hi tmgg,

There will be a medical record (chart) that will state your reaction to the sedation. There are other sedatives available, nevertheless, you should review your chart for personal awareness in the event your chart isn't readily available for a possible future event.

The anesthesiologist will/should ask prior if you know of any allergic reactions to any medication.
