Anesthesia is applied for patients who will be undergoing surgery as well
as numerous other medical procedures. It is a highly specialized medical
malpractice, one that only a trained anesthesiologist should be overseeing.
While medical technology has advanced the practice to great heights, there
may still be times when a surgeon, nurse, and even an anesthesiologist
makes a critical error that leads to a patient’s suffering.

form of negligence,

The Impact of Anesthesia Errors
Anesthesiologists have the duty of recording and maintaining a patient’s
vitals and oxygen levels while the patient remains anesthetized. If they
fail to adequately monitor this, this critical mistake can have life-threatening
consequences for the patient.
These are some of the common types of anesthesia errors:
- Drug interactions
- Allergic reactions
- Using defective medical devices
- Overdosage or under-dose of anesthesia
- Incorrect or insufficient labels or warnings
- Failure to provide instructions to the patient prior to providing anesthesia
- Delaying the time to deliver anesthesia to the patient
Anesthesia errors can lead to the following conditions:
- Seizures and strokes
- Spinal cord injury
Brain or organ damage
- Cardiovascular collapse
- Malignant hyperthermia
- Vein, nerve or artery damage
- Coma and death
