The Devastating Effects Of Anesthesia Errors
Patients’ lives are threatened in numerous ways by mistakes in the administration of anesthesia. If an anesthesiologist administers too much or too little of a drug, or if the patient has an allergic reaction to anesthesia, or if the anesthesiologist fails to monitor the patient’s breathing and oxygen levels, the results can be utterly devastating.
Even if the patient survives an anesthesia error, there is still a risk of multiple adverse outcomes, including:
Any of these types of anesthesia-related injuries can result in permanent disability and potentially death, and victims and their families need to be aware of their full range of options for obtaining financial compensation for ongoing medical treatment, lost earning capacity and other financial burdens resulting from the anesthesiologist’s malpractice.
If an anesthesia error results in death, the patient’s surviving family members can bring a wrongful death claim to cover final expenses and other costs.
