Common Types of Anesthesia Malpractice

Medical malpractice can happen in many different ways, but the primary cause of malpractice is negligence. Typically, the most common types of anesthesia malpractice that occur include:

  • Administering too much anesthesia to a patient
  • Giving a patient too little anesthesia
  • Using the wrong type of anesthesia on a patient
  • Failure to monitor a patient while under anesthesia
  • Not providing a patient with instructions before giving them anesthesia
  • Failure to administer oxygen to the patient while they are under anesthesia

Every year in the U.S. more than 34 deaths are caused by anesthesia and in more than 281 deaths anesthesia is listed as a contributing factor. The most commonly reported side effects of anesthesia are sore throat, nausea, and pain, but in more severe cases, anesthesia errors can cause blood clots, respiratory issues, heart problems, and other extreme side effects that can be potentially fatal.

Anesthesia Malpractice | Wrongful Death

According to the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), the leading type of anesthesia malpractice claim is surgical anesthesia, with 65% of claims citing surgical anesthesia errors. Other types of anesthesia malpractice claims include chronic pain management, acute pain management, and obstetric anesthesia (ob-gyn).

The Anesthesia Malpractice Lawyers at the Dixon Injury Firm understand how devastating it can be to lose an immediate family member due to anesthesia malpractice and are dedicated to doing everything in their power to recover full compensation for the surviving family members of anesthesia malpractice victims. While some conditions can increase the chances of an anesthesia error occurring, including but not limited to, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, and un-discovered anesthesia allergies, for the most part, anesthesia malpractice is caused by negligent medical personnel.

Generally, proving that a nurse, doctor, hospital, or other medical professional is liable to compensate you for your family member’s wrongful death is done by supplying evidence of a doctor-patient relationship, providing a copy of the victim’s autopsy, and hiring an experienced Anesthesia Malpractice Lawyer to represent your case. If a medical professional is found responsible for the death of a patient caused by anesthesia errors, the negligent medical personnel could face the loss of their medical license, the hospital they are employed with could be liable for damages, and depending on the circumstances of the accident, potential jail time or other consequences could apply.

If you have recently lost someone because of anesthesia malpractice, it’s crucial to gather substantial evidence of the medical personnel’s malpractice and hire an experienced Wrongful Death Lawyer to represent your case.
