Even with extensive preparation and fact checking, medical professionals still make errors when it comes to the administration of anesthesia. Anesthesia technicians are responsible for doing background checks on each patient to make sure the proper drug and the right dosage of the drug is used.  They are also in charge of making sure the medical equipment is up to date and properly maintained.     Here is a list of some errors that can happen relating to anesthesia:

  • Improper dosage
  • Wrong drug for specific patient
  • Use of broken/faulty equipment
  • Improper monitoring of unconscious patient
  • Disregard of vital sign monitor during procedure
  • Incorrect reaction to vital sign monitor information
  • Improper explanation of procedure to patient

Types of Complications from Anesthesia Errors

There is a wide range of complications that are the result of anesthesia errors.  They can be as mild as sickness or headaches and as severe as brain damage and death.  The suffering, pain and financial obligation caused by your complications from negligent anesthesia use can result in a legal claim against your medical provider.  The difference between a side effect from anesthesia and a complication from anesthesia can be small.  Do not assume your symptoms are side effects.  Consult with Medical Claim Legal today.
