When someone requires surgery, their doctor might recommend that they receive anesthesia during the surgery. The only person who should be administering anesthesia is an experienced anesthesiologist.

If your anesthesiologist was negligent and you became a victim of malpractice, you may wish to consider taking legal action against the liable party.

Impacts of an Anesthesia Error

The use of general anesthesia has made most types of modern surgery possible. However, the successful use of anesthesia must be administered by a skilled professional, usually either a physician specialist or a certified registered nurse anesthetist. Even the most basic surgical procedures can be impacted by anesthesia errors, leading to catastrophic aftereffects such as:

  • Brain damage
  • Stroke
  • Coma
  • Permanent vegetative state
  • Heart attack
  • Death

Common Errors In Anesthesia Provision

Each injury case based upon medical malpractice is unique, but there are some common themes in how anesthesia errors take place. Some of the circumstances include:

  • Administering the wrong anesthesia or failing to determine if the patient has allergies to a type of anesthesia
  • Not providing proper instructions to the patient about the anesthesia before surgery
  • Providing too much anesthesia during the procedure (oversedation)
  • Providing too little anesthesia during the procedure (under-sedation), causing the patient to feel pain during the surgery
  • Inattention to patient positioning during surgery, or failing to consider how positioning may affect a patient’s blood pressure or the flow of oxygen to the brain
