Medical Malpractice Attorneys for Anesthesia Errors
Anesthesia is often used in order to help a patient go through a medical procedure or surgery without suffering from any pain. Although for the most part, anesthesia is administered in a safe and effective manner, there are anesthesia errors that can and do occur, causing catastrophic results. Patients can suffer from a heart attack, coma, stroke or death from an anesthesia error.
There are different types of anesthesia that are given, depending on which type of procedure the patient is having. For most surgeries, the patient will be given general anesthesia, which will render them completely unconscious. Some procedures will utilize local anesthesia, which will numb only the area in which the procedure is being performed. Regional anesthesia will block the pain signals going to the brain temporarily and spinal anesthesia (like an epidural), will numb the lower body and is frequently used during childbirth.
There are many different reasons why an anesthesia error can happen and often, they are the result of medical malpractice or an error by the doctor. If the anesthesiologist or other medical professional failed to deliver the appropriate level of care, they may be held responsible for any resulting injuries.
