Wichita Anesthesia Error Lawyer

When you go to the doctor or hospital for a medical procedure, you expect the medical professionals, like your anesthesiologist, to know what they’re doing. You expect to stick to your doctor’s plan and wake up after your procedure without any problems. But, sometimes, anesthesia mistakes are made, and patients just like you suffer potentially severe consequences.

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), it’s estimated that around 40 to 50 million surgeries are performed in the United States every year. With that many patients and health workers involved in each procedure, there are bound to be errors. And when those mistakes occur, you and other victims shouldn’t suffer in silence.

If you or someone you know has suffered due to medical negligence, a qualified Wichita anesthesia error lawyer from Prochaska, Howell & Prochaska LLC can help you seek compensation.

Sedation Mistakes and Resulting Complications

While you may think that anesthesia mistakes only occur during surgery, that isn’t always the case. A properly trained anesthesiologist will understand your medical case, do pre- and post-surgery checks, discuss your health plan with you, and ensure you understand all the risks involved. However, even a seasoned anesthesiologist can make mistakes, and those errors may happen at any time before, during, or after your surgery.

The most common mistakes are often one or more of the following:

  • Failing to review the medical history of the patient
  • Failing to provide the patient with the correct preoperative instructions
  • Failing to educate the patient about the possible risks involved in their procedure
  • Delaying the administration of anesthesia
  • Failing to monitor or administer surgical oxygen properly
  • Failing to monitor the vital signs of the patient
  • Failing to identify or treat any complications that arise during the procedure
  • Administering too much or too little anesthesia
  • Administering the wrong type of anesthesia
  • Improperly inserting the intubation tube
  • Using equipment that is defective or faulty
  • Being under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Leaving an anesthetized patient unattended
  • Leaving a patient sedated for too long
  • Failing to provide post-operative instructions

As you can see, there are many ways throughout the entire procedure process where an error relating to anesthesia can occur. When that does happen, there are a number of complications and injuries that can result, such as:

  • Nerve damage
  • Delirium or confusion
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Respiratory issues
  • Blood clots
  • Brain damage
  • Heart attack
  • Anaphylaxis
  • Stroke
  • Wrongful death

There can be risks with any surgery, and if you have any concerns before your procedure, it’s best to discuss them with your doctor or surgeon. If you end up suffering from a medical mistake and believe it was caused by negligence, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice case, which our office will be glad to assist you with.
