Anesthesia Errors

An anesthesia error occurs when a medical professional fails to provide proper medical treatment to a patient. This error, which may potentially be classified as medical malpractice, can cause the patient to suffer death, brain injury, or severe lifelong health issues.

Anesthesia Error

What is an Anesthesia Error?

An anesthesia error can occur when the anesthesiologist does not properly treat the patient. The following are some of the mistakes an anesthesiologist might make:

  • administers too much anesthesia to the patient
  • misuses anesthetics
  • uses defective equipment
  • fails to monitor the patient’s vital signs
  • improperly intubates the patient

The anesthesiologist can jeopardize the patient’s well-being even before the anesthesia is administered. Failing to learn the patient’s medical history or inform the patient about risks involved, for example, may be considered medical malpractice.

What are the Effects of an Anesthesia Error?

Physical and/or mental damage can result from an anesthesia error. The following are just a few of the outcomes a patient can experience:

  • fluid in the lungs
  • brain damage
  • hypotension
  • spinal cord injury
  • heart attack
  • stroke
  • death
