Medical Mistakes: Anesthesia Errors


Anesthesia is a fundamental part of the surgical process, which is why it must be administered correctly. Far too often, however, medical injuries occur from mismanaged anesthesia usage. In some cases, patients receive the wrong dose of anesthesia. Other times, an anesthesiologist doesn’t properly examine the patient’s vitals before giving them anesthesia, or, during surgery itself, the anesthesia is improperly administered because of a miscommunication amongst the medical team. Regardless of these circumstances, anesthesia errors are a form of medical malpractice. Medical injuries from anesthesia errors can range from allergic reactions to death. If you or a loved one has suffered as the result of anesthesia misusage, consult a medical malpractice attorney about your legal options.
