Anesthesia Mistake Attorney
Anesthesiologists bear great responsibility for the patient—they must administer powerful drugs that intentionally cause a loss of sensation during surgical procedures, while keeping a slow but steady heartbeat.
Unfortunately, hundreds of deaths and other injuries occur each year as a result of anesthetic complications (e.g., overdose or adverse reactions). Commonly, patients report experiencing anesthesia awareness, where they feel the pain of surgery but are unable to vocalize or otherwise show their distress. Patients who experience anesthesia awareness often also experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
If you have experienced suffering and anguish as a result of an anesthesia error, call Murphy, Falcon & Murphy at 410.983.6266.
What Causes Anesthetic Complications?
Although there are risks that make patients more likely to experience complications, like diabetes, high blood pressure, or obesity, there are many additional factors that may be the result of inadequate care by an anesthesiologist or other healthcare provider.
These can include:
- Inadequate drug dosing
- Poor monitoring
- Improper anesthetic placement
- Failure to refill the anesthetic machine's vaporizers
- Insufficient training
- Machine misuse or malfunction
