What to do when an anesthesia mistake happens

If you suspect you or a loved one have been harmed due to an anesthesia mistake, you need to contact an attorney as soon as possible. The cases are considered medical malpractice issues and can become very complex.

There are three basic types of anesthesia:

  • General anesthesia
  • Local anesthesia
  • Regional anesthesia

Anesthesiologists have a very difficult yet important job. They help ensure that surgical procedures go as smoothly as possible. Anesthesiologists are highly trained doctors, but their mistakes can cause several anesthesia complications.

  1. Improper dosages of anesthetics can lead to major problems for a patient. These errors are often the result of an inexperienced anesthesiologist, unfamiliarity with equipment, or carelessness.
  2. Complications of anesthesia during pregnancy when a regional anesthetic is often used can lead to injuries to the baby and the mother.
  3. The fluid in a patient’s IV must be properly regulated when anesthesia is being administered, or the procedure could face complications.
