Causes for Brain Damage
Negligence from a medical professional’s part that leads to a brain injury can take various shapes:
Prenatal Care Inadequacy: An obstetrician is required to provide responsible care to the mother to ensure safe health for the baby and the mother. A lack of appropriate tests, bad decisions during delivery, and an overall under the standard of care, can end with brain damage. It can cause numerous birth defects, mental retardation, and other injuries.
Medication Mistakes: Medications can help heal a patient, but if given the wrong one, or given the wrong dosage, it can have disastrous effects to the human body, especially the brain. The physician prescribing the medication needs to be aware of the patient’s medical history or any allergies.
Misdiagnosis: There has been many cases of sports players such as, hockey and American football, where they have suffered a concussion and the doctors failed to recognize long-term effects of repeated head trauma. If a doctor fails to see a potential risk, it can cause grave brain injuries in the long-run.
Complications during surgery: Performing an operation on the brain is a very delicate surgery. Any mistakes done while performing on a brain can end with infections, or other complications that can leave permanent damage to the brain.
Improper administering of anesthesia: Giving too much, too little, injecting in the wrong vein, or muscle can result in many injuries. Giving extreme sedation can lead to brain injuries and even death. It is the duty of the anesthesiologist to find out about the patients’ medical records, or any medication that the patient is currently using that can affect the anesthesia’s effect.
