Types of Anesthesia Errors
Anesthesia errors can occur at any point in the medical procedure. If you are undergoing surgery, your anesthesiologist may make an error during one of the following steps:
- Selecting the right anesthetic
- Administering the anesthetic
- Monitoring your vital signs
- Recovering from the anesthesia
Anesthesia errors can also occur before, during, or after a medical procedure. If you are undergoing a medical procedure that does not involve anesthesia, your anesthesiologist may still make an error before, during, or after the procedure.
Some examples of anesthesia errors include:
- Failing to properly monitor a patient's vital signs
- Administering the wrong dose of anesthesia
- Administering the wrong type of anesthesia
- Administering anesthesia to a patient who was not supposed to receive it
- Delaying treatment of an anesthesia-related injury
Anesthesia errors can also lead to wrongful deaths. If your loved one died due to an anesthesia error, our North Carolina anesthesiology error attorneys can help you understand your legal options.
Who is Responsible for Anesthesia Errors?
Anesthesiologists are medical professionals who are responsible for ensuring the safety of their patients. When anesthesia errors occur and a patient is injured, the anesthesiologist may be at fault for failing to provide the appropriate level of care.
Anesthesia errors can be caused by:
- Poor training
- Poor monitoring of a patient's vital signs
- Poor communication with other medical professionals
- Poor judgment
Anesthesia errors can be fatal. When a patient dies due to an anesthesia error, the surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party.
