Medical malpractice due to anesthesia mistakes is getting quite common in the United States, especially Miami, and thus, one should know that they can claim their legal rights. A Miami anesthesia mistake lawyer should represent you if you have fallen victim to medical malpractice. Anesthesia is an important part of most of the medical procedures, and without proper knowledge, one should not be authorized to inject anesthesia into any patient whatsoever.
THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH ANESTHESIA MISTAKES
Anesthesia mistakes can occur in the emergency room, operation room or the hospital. Anesthetics mistakes can happen even in a simple dental procedure. Severe injuries, even death, can happen if the anesthesia injection was injected negligently.
Child Birth Anesthesia Mistakes
The anesthesia mistake can occur during childbirth if the mother chooses to have the delivery through cesarean section. Child birth injury due to Anesthesia can happen when the medical professional is preparing the patient for the surgery, or in the operating room; during surgery, or even after the surgery is complete, or during the out-patient medical procedures.
Administration of Anesthesia
An improper injection of anesthesia can cause the patient to suffer from low blood pressure. Thus an insufficient blood flow to the major and vital organs of the body, including the brain which can lead to brain injuries and body injuries. Anesthesia malpractice is not confined to the anesthesiologist only. The medical providers who administer the anesthetic are also considered to be at fault.
Anesthesia can be one of the most dangerous stages
Of course, anesthesia was made for the possibility of saving a human life through life-saving surgeries, as it eases the pain of the patient. However, many people do not know that anesthesia administered before the operation is one of most hazardous stages in a medical operation. Most of the surgeries are completely impossible if surgeons did not use anesthesia for surgery as it alleviates the pain of the undergoing surgery and lessens the pain even after surgery.
COMMON TYPES OF ANESTHESIA ERRORS
In the United States of America, there are around 200,000 people who are a victim to anesthesia mistakes, and thus, either they lose their lives, or they develop a terrible (permanent) medical condition. The best way to get rid of this issue is to make sure that the medical staff is properly trained.
The most common types of Anesthesia errors are as follows:
- The wrong placement of the anesthesia can cause a significant injury or even death.
- Giving the patient too much anesthesia which cause overdose, wrongful death or injury.
- Other dangerous drugs interacting with the anesthesia can cause a lot of severe injuries.
- Improper administration of anesthesia to a patient with an allergy to the drug.
Negligent Medical Labeling
The inadequate labeling on the products can cause a medical professional to administrate anesthesia to the patient who does not require it.
When the medical staff fails to explain to the patients the proper instructions before administrating anesthesia, for instance, the pre-surgical requisites that they cannot eat or drink beforehand, it eventually results in an anesthesia error.
