1.) People of the Philippines vs Dan Ave Y Tabobo

Protocol is to admit the patient at least one day before the

surgery. Why?
1.) For convenience of everybody
2.) More importantly, to conduct initial examinations. To
prepare the patient one day before the scheduled
o For the anesthesiologists to do the pre-operative
2.) People of the Philippines vs Henry Togahan examination, wherein they will ask the patient’s
history, allergy etc.

In this case, to look at the patient’s airway. Thus, the

anesthesiologist was held liable. He failed to conduct a pre-
operative exam. He did not see the patient a day before. He
saw the patient on the day of the operation already which is
very material because instead of putting it in the airway, he
placed it sa daanan ng pagkain.
o Especially, we are talking here about a robust
patient. Medyo malaki. Masikip yung nape niyan.
Yung jaw medyo restrictive din which could have
possibly contributed to the injury of the patient.

It does not follow with the standard of care with

anesthesiologist which is you should see the patient at least 1
day before to conduct your pre-operative exam.

Surgeon was also liable.

3.) Fernando Estabas Mahawan Alias Pado vs People Under the Captain of the Ship Doctrine, if you’re the head of
of the Philippines the surgical team, you are the responsible for the negligent
acts of the other members of the team.

DEFENSE: Surgeon said that this doctrine does not apply
anymore in Jurisprudence because in the US.
- But SC has negated his claim by saying that here in the
Philippines, we still adhere to the Captain of the Ship

Operation is either elective or emergency
Elective – not an emergency case. Can be scheduled.

In the case, this is an elective procedure, a general operation,

wherein the patient will be opened up and to do that, you must
keep the patient in general anesthesia (walang malay)

 General anesthesia – walang malay. The patient is

asleep. The entire body is anesthetized.
 Local anesthesia – gising ka. Only parts are

Q: How would general anesthesia be done?

For general anesthesia, muscles should be relaxed. But the
problem in GA is that if your muscles are relaxed, you wont be
able to breathe. So to be able to breathe, a machine will make
you breathe. For that to happen, there must be a tube inserted
*here* going towards the ventilator.
- Dun nagkaproblema. Sa insertion of the tube.
Remember there are 2 openings. One going to the
lungs, the other going down into the stomach.
- It was argued that the anesthesiologist inserted it In the
wrong place. Instead of inserting in the trachia, she
inserted it in the esophagus.
o What is the proof? Lumaki yung tiyan.

Q: What is the problem if it was inserted in the wrong

- No air. Imagine, ang humihinga sa’yo yung tiyan mo. If there
is no air in the lungs, there would be no oxygen going to the
heart and no oxygen everywhere.
- So in a few minutes, the victim went into coma. No oxygen
went into the brain which led into the comatose of the patient.
In 2-5 mins the brain cells will die.

Cyanosis - Bluish discoloration. A sign that there is lack of


Nevermind the rest of the body, but if the brain dies, such as
this case, the patient will die.

Surgeon is liable. Anesthesologist is liable. Hospital?

Next meeting: Professional Services Incorporated vs Agana
