The administration of anesthesia during surgery, while highly important,
may seem like a relatively minor step in the surgical process. The proper
use of anesthesia, however, is highly technical and even slight errors
can result in:
- Wrongful death
- Hypoxia (lack of oxygen resulting in brain injuries or death)
- Trauma if the patient awakes during surgery
- Stress to the autonomic system, resulting in an inability of the patient's
body to acquire and utilize oxygen
Often, anesthesia errors are committed not just by anesthesiologists but
by an entire collaborative team that includes nurses and doctors, thus
potentially increasing organizations' liability.
If you or a loved one has been
injured during a medical procedure due to an anesthesia error, you may have a legal right to financial compensation.
