Anesthesiologist Error Attorney in San Francisco
Information about Anesthesiologist Errors
In many surgical procedures, an anesthesiologist stays only long enough to administer the anesthesia to the patient. Once they have done this, an anesthetist nurse takes over for the remainder of the procedure. It can often happen that complications arise due to error in initially anesthetizing the patient or providing further anesthesia during the procedure, and in cases such as these, the anesthesiologist or anesthetist nurse responsible may be held liable for the damages they cause to the victim. Some of the more common examples of anesthesiologist error include:
- Over-anesthetizing of the patient - This can lead to hypotension, stroke, heart attack, and spinal injury in the patient
- Failure to properly intubate - The anesthesia delivery tube can be incorrectly placed in the patient's stomach, instead of the lungs, causing great injury or illness to the patient
- Errors in utilizing spinal anesthetics - This can result in severe spinal cord injury to the patient
