One of the most worrying aspects of surgery is being put under general anesthesia during your operation. The sobering truth is that anesthesia errors and complications occur—some due to elements beyond the control of doctors and some due to preventable mistakes and negligence. Common anesthesia errors could involve inadequate anesthesia monitoring, wrong anesthesia dosage, and intubation injuries. In addition, you may have an anesthesia error case if your anesthesiologist does not correctly recognize or respond to an anesthesia complication.

If you or a loved one has been harmed by an anesthesia error—including a mistake involving general anesthesia, nerve blocks, or spinal anesthesia—it is vital to understand how the error took place and who was at fault.

Complications from anesthesia errors include:

  • Brain damage,
  • Vein and artery damage,
  • Infection,
  • Organ damage,
  • Blood pressure complications,
  • Awareness of the operation,
  • Nerve damage,
  • Seizure,
  • Stroke, and even
  • Death

Anesthesiologists and hospitals should be held accountable for preventable anesthesia errors, and your family should be compensated for any damages stemming from an anesthesia error caused by medical malpractice.
