Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers represent patients and their families in cases against anesthesiologists and hospitals for errors and mistakes that occur during surgeries and other procedures. The results of these errors are often catastrophic and even fatal.
Anesthesia is administered to prevent pain or other sensations during a medical procedure. Administering anesthesia is a very sophisticated and often very complicated medical procedure in itself, which is usually performed by a highly trained expert. The anesthesia is normally given as an injection or inhaled as a gas.
When administered properly, anesthesia enables procedures that would be otherwise intolerably painful. But, when the anesthesiologist makes errors, the results can often be severe or even fatal. Errors in anesthesia are often the result of medical malpractice and can give rise to an anesthesia malpractice lawsuit.
Types of Anesthesia Medical Malpractice
- Failure to administer the anesthesia properly, which can lead to complications with the underlying medical procedure
- Over-anesthetizing, which can cause serious side-effects, such as hypertension, back injury, spinal cord injury, heart attack, stroke, or death
- Failing to take into account a patient's other medical conditions, like sleep apnea, that might affect the ability to tolerate anesthesia
- Misuse of spinal anesthesia, which can result in nerve and spinal cord damage
Anesthesia malpractice can also cause severe developmental or behavioral problems in children. Many anesthesiologists are employed by private medical groups who have contracts to provide anesthesia services at local hospitals and clinics. It is essential to determine whether a negligent anesthesiologist was employed by a hospital or was under contract to provide services. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer will know how to obtain this information.
