Anesthesia Errors

One of the most important parts of surgery is the anesthesia. Anesthesia makes patients unconscious so that they do not feel the pain of surgery. The drugs are administered by a specialized doctor called an anesthesiologist.

Unfortunately, anesthesia is highly dangerous when misused. If you or someone you love has suffered injuries because of an anesthesia error during surgery, contact the Sheboygan medical malpractice lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, by calling (920) 459-8000 today.

Types of Errors

Anesthesia errors may occur in a number of ways. Specifically, they may occur because the dosage of the medication is wrong, or because the wrong type of medication is administered.

  • Improper intubation
  • Keeping a patient medicated too long
  • Overdosing a patient
  • Failing to monitor an individual
  • Failing to respond to changes in patients’ vital signs

These errors may cause irreparable damage to an individual. They may be left with serious injuries that include punctured lungs, brain damage, or worse. In certain extreme cases, death may occur.
