a doctor would ask.
A doctor who was performing an ectopic pregnancy operation decided to let a relatively inexperienced anesthetist finish the operation. The anesthetist inserted a tube wrongly resulting in lack of oxygen to the patient. By the time he called for assistance the patient was unable to be revived. After investigation, the doctor was allowed to continue working at the hospital. The anesthetist is unable to explain why he waited for so long before he called for assistance.
