To evaluate trends, if any, anesthetic experiences of 10,000 cases in the total performed at the department of Anesthesiology, Han Kang Sung Shim Hospital, Choong Ang University, School of Medicine from Dec. 197I through Nov. 1976 were analyzed statistically according to anesthetic method, age, sex, department, anesthetic agent, anesthetic duration, physical status and cause of death. The results are as follows; 1. About forty-five percent of all surgical patients were emergency cases. 2. The spinal and regional blocks tended to increase compared with inhalation anesthesia. 3. The patients under 1 year and over 60-years of age also tended to increase. 4. In almost all cases, post-operative and post-anesthetic cause of death was due to the severity of preexisting disease itself and overall death rate of surgical patients who received anesthesia was 0.16% 5. Through this statistical study, we can perform anesthesia with more safety and ease, and also eliminate post-operative and post-anesthetic complications, with further study of new agents and techniques.
