Anesthesia Errors

Anesthesia Errors

If you are ever confronted with a medical condition that requires a surgical procedure you will be put under using anesthesia. As you are most likely concerned about the outcome of the surgery you may take for granted that the anesthesia will be properly administered. For the most part anesthesia is administered without incident although there is always the risk of an anesthesia error or medication error while you are under. If you, or a loved one, have been the victim of an anesthesia error or mistake you do not have to face it alone. Please call a Christiana Delaware Anesthesia Malpractice Attorney.

Delaware and Maryland Anesthesia Medical Malpractice Attorneys

There are two very common types of anesthesia malpractice injuries. They are:

Anesthesia Wrongful Death

The point to anesthesia is to numb the body so that the patient does not experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure. The body and its functions are intentionally slowed nearly to the point of death. If proper procedures, protocol and standards of care are not adhered to it is possible for a patient to die from incorrect anesthesia dosages.

Anesthesia Awareness

Sometimes a patient will be administered anesthesia and it will appear as though they are under. This may not be the case as they are actually awake, cognizant of their surroundings and can hear the conversations in the operating room. What they cannot do to the paralyzing agents they are given is move or communicate this to the surgeons and medical team.

Anesthesia awareness victims may suffer from post traumatic stress disorder, nightmares, insomnia, flashbacks, paranoia and other symptoms associated with extremely traumatic and painful events.
