Anesthesia is an important component of many medical procedures, enabling your medical team to more safely and effectively complete your procedure. Anesthesia also improves your comfort during the procedure, helping provide the best possible experience.
However, there are often risks associated with anesthesia. In order to ensure that you do not suffer a serious injury, it must be administered by a skilled and experienced anesthesiologist who monitors your vital signs until the anesthesia wears off. When anesthesia is administered or monitored negligently, it can result in devastating injuries.
Common anesthesia errors include:
- Failure to provide patient pre-surgery instructions
- Failure to properly monitor a patient
- Delayed anesthesia
- Failure to administer oxygen
- Failure to check patient for allergies
- Failure to recognize potential drug interactions
- Faulty anesthesia deliver equipment
