Our Michigan anesthesiologist malpractice lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. handle lawsuits against anesthesiologists. An anesthesiologist is a doctor who cares for surgical patients, administering the appropriate amount of anesthesia to make them comfortable during medical procedures. Unlike other physicians, an anesthesiologist does not specialize in treating patients for medical conditions or perform surgeries. An anesthesiologist’s duty is to make sure the patient has the required pain relief and sedation needed during their surgical procedures. They are responsible for administering the anesthesia, monitoring the patient’s vital bodily functions, such as heart rate, during surgical procedures, and carefully calculate the dosages of anesthesia and pain control medications necessary.
There are many common risks a when a patient receives anesthesia. However, when a medical mistake is made by an anesthesiologist and the patient suffers serious injuries due to the anesthesiologist’s error, or even death, the patient may have an anesthesiologist malpractice lawsuit.
