Medicolegal Consequences of Deaths under Anaesthesia in the Netherlands

  • J. F. Crul
Part of the European Academy of Anaesthesiology book series (ANAESTHESIOLOGY, volume 3)

Therefore the procedure when a patient dies during or immediately after an operation under anaesthesia is almost identical.
