Who Committed the Malpractice ? Was it a Doctor? Nurse? Was it Hospital Negligence ? What Florida Victims of Medical Malpractice Need To Know About Anesthesia Errors

Anesthesiologists play a major role in both emergency and non-emergency surgery. It is their job to make sure that a patient is medically stable and fit for non-emergency surgery and that a patient is stable during emergency surgery. Because they monitor and help regulate heart and breathing functions during any general anesthesia surgery, when anesthesiologists are negligent and commit malpractice, the consequences often lead to serious injury.

When a patient is placed under general anesthesia and an endotracheal tube is used, the anesthesiologist is actually controlling a patient’s breathing.

If the tube is not inserted properly [for example, when it is inserted into the esophagus instead of the trachea] a patient will not receive enough oxygen in his lungs; this can result in serious injury or death. The most serious cases of anesthesia medical malpractice occur under general anesthesia and can lead to injuries that include aspiration pneumonia, hypoxia, traumatic brain injury, coma or death.

Spinal and epidural anesthesia [often given to mothers during childbirth] can also cause serious and catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, or paralysis.

Unfortunately in a claim for medical malpractice your time frame for filing a lawsuit is not very long. Failing to act quickly may jeopardize any potential claim you have. The time to obtain as much information about your potential claim is as soon as you possibly can.
