Anesthesia Errors and Complications Resulting in Brain Damage and Death

Anesthesia allows us to undergo surgery or other invasive procedures without experiencing pain and discomfort. Without it, even the simplest of medical or dental operations would be excruciating experiences. As far as medical science has come since the days of chloroform, ether, and the like, there are still risks associated with the administration of anesthesia. In fact, many patients suffer serious or even fatal brain injuries due to anesthesia errors or complications.

Whether it's local, regional, or general, anesthesia must be applied with great care by trained professionals or even a small miscalculation can result in devastating consequences. If you or someone you love has been the victim of an anesthesia-related injury or death, you may be asking yourself questions like:

  • Who was responsible?
  • How am I going to pay off the resulting medical bills?
  • Do I have a legitimate medical malpractice claim?
  • What's the first step I should take in pursuing compensation?

What Are Some Common Anesthesia Errors?

Here are some of the most common anesthesia-related mistakes resulting from medical negligence or malpractice:

  • Improper intubation - Anesthesiologists will often intubate a patient going under in order to assist them with respiration. An error during intubation can lead to serious injuries.
  • Inadequate monitoring - A patient's vital signs must be monitored closely throughout a surgical procedure, or else a complication may go unaddressed, causing serious injury or death.
  • Too little or too much anesthesia - It is extremely important for an anesthesiologist to administer the proper dosage. If a patient receives too much anesthesia, s/he may suffer brain injury or even a coma. Too little, and the patient may wake up during surgery, paralyzed and unable to speak, yet sensitive to the pain, which is, to say the least, a horrifying experience.
