Anesthesia Errors in Florida
Contact Our Miami Medical Malpractice Attorney
Not many people realize it, but one of the most dangerous parts of a surgical
or medical procedure is actually administering anesthesia to patients.
This process is so complicated and must be done with such great precision
that anesthesiologists – professionals who have dedicated their
careers to anesthetics and their use – are required. Just like any
other member of a hospital's staff, though, an anesthesiologist can
make critical mistakes and end up seriously harming the patient.
If anesthesia is administered incorrectly, any of the following consequences
and more may occur:
- Awareness during surgery
- Painful vomiting
- Acute hyperthermia
- Delirium or memory loss
In some cases, patients who have been administered anesthesia improperly
fatal consequences. We encourage you to discuss your case with our Florida medical malpractice
lawyer to understand your options.
Forms of Anesthesia Errors
As the science of anesthesia is incredibly precise, so must be the practitioners
in charge of overseeing its use. An error that might at first seem insignificant
can quickly result in extensive harm and dire concerns. When this happens,
the anesthesiologist, or perhaps the
hospital itself, needs to be held accountable for the patient's needless suffering.
Anesthesia errors are sometimes caused by the following actions:
- Providing not enough anesthesia
- Administering too much anesthesia
- Using regional anesthesia on the wrong body part
- Failing to recognize an allergy to anesthesia
