Anesthesia Errors Lawsuit Claims Lawyer
Anesthesia is one of the key advancements in medical science that allows for complex and invasive surgeries and medical treatments to be performed. Without numbing the pain or controlled unconsciousness, many medical procedures would not be possible. However, anesthesia is also very dangerous, requiring extensive training and skill to perform effectively and safely. Anesthesia errors can cause serious injuries and death. If you need an anesthesia error lawsuit claims lawyer in Duluth, GA, you can trust Keith D. Leshine Attorney at Law, LLC to handle your medical malpractice case.
One of the biggest risks when undergoing surgery or invasive medical treatments is anesthesia. An anesthesiologist or doctor must carefully determine the correct amount of dosage for each patient based on their age, size and medical conditions. The patient must be closely monitored during surgery or treatment for any possible adverse reactions to the anesthesia, including their breathing and heart rate. Risks associated with anesthesia should always be discussed with the patient prior to use. However, a patient accepting the known risks of anesthesia does not include surgical or anesthesia errors.
Injuries and Deaths Caused by Anesthesia Negligence
Anesthesia must be carefully administered to avoid injuries to the patient. Not enough anesthesia can result in a patient “waking up” during surgery or feeling pain. Too much anesthesia can cause brain or organ damage and death. Anesthesia errors that cause injury or death are considered medical malpractice when they could be avoided by adherence to standard medical practice. In other words, if another anesthesiologist or doctor were performing the procedure correctly, the injury could have been avoided.
