Serious Injuries or Death Due to Anesthesia Errors Lawyer

Anesthesia is a necessary element for many medical procedures, reducing pain and discomfort for the patient. While there are many different types of anesthesia, general anesthesia has the most benefits and the highest risks. When surgery is needed, general anesthesia puts the patient into an unconscious state to numb sensation and allow the surgical team to perform their operation. When errors occur in administrating anesthesia, it can cause serious injuries and even death for the patient. Anesthesia error are medical malpractice claims that are an area of law that Dwayne L. Brown handles for our patients in the Atlanta area.

It is important to understand that general anesthesia always comes with risks. Those risks are mitigated by careful administration of the anesthesia and close monitoring of the patient. Too much or too little can have a devastating effect. There are risks of a patient having a reaction to the anesthesia. These risks should be carefully explained to the patient before surgery. Although there are risks with anesthesia, if properly administered, it can have life-saving benefits. Unfortunately, anesthesia errors can be deadly and are not part of the accepted risk.

Injuries from Anesthesia Errors

Many factors must be controlled and monitored when using general anesthesia. Weight, age, illnesses and other factors impact the dosage. Often, an anesthesiologist administers the anesthesia and monitors the patient, regulating the anesthesia during major surgeries. When dosage errors occur, it is important to act fast to avoid serious brain injuries or death. Injuries can include organ damage, brain damage, cardiovascular problems and fatal complications.
