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
  • Hypothermia
  • Acute hyperthermia
  • Delirium or memory loss
  • Paralysis

In some cases, patients who have been administered anesthesia improperly have suffered 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
