Caring, Competent Michigan Medical Malpractice Attorneys
Most of the time, when you need surgery, you need anesthesia, too. Hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers administer anesthesia every day. Almost all major surgeries, and even routine procedures such as colonoscopy, require the use of general anesthesia.
Keeping a patient safely unconscious for their medical procedure and bringing them out of anesthesia afterward is a delicate procedure. It requires precise attention to the patient's medical history, condition, and vital signs. There are many ways for anesthesiology malpractice to take place, including:
- Administering the wrong drug
- Administering the wrong dosage of drug
- Administering a drug to which the patient is allergic
- Failing to monitor vital signs or to respond to a change in vital signs
- Incorrect use of equipment
- Failure to maintain equipment or using faulty equipment
- Administering anesthesia too late
If too much or the wrong anesthesia is given, catastrophic outcomes can occur. These include infection, bleeding, coma, loss of function, and even death. If too little medicine is administered, a patient may be conscious during a major procedure, able to feel pain and hear doctors, but unable to communicate.
