We take safe anesthesia for granted as a part of many medical procedures. But just as the surgical knife always poses some degree of risk, so does the pharmacopoeia of anesthetic drugs.Maximum Compensation for Anesthesiologist Negligence
Some anesthesia errors are due to omission or inattention, but the consequences can be extremely severe, leading to brain damage, poisoning or death. Patients can stop breathing, experience heart attack or stroke, or harm themselves thrashing due to unalleviated pain. Anesthetic gases have been known to burst into flame, causing severe burns.
These errors are especially appalling because they are simply the result of inattention:
- Administering drugs that the patient is allergic to
- Administering drugs that are contraindicated to present prescriptions
- Administering the wrong dosage
Other serious errors are the result of poor planning or inadequate monitoring of equipment.Hartford and Upper Connecticut Valley Anesthesia Errors Attorney
