Medical Malpractice - Anesthesia Errors

There are risks associated with every surgical procedure.  When the surgery requires the administration of anesthesia, those risks are increased significantly.

Anesthesiologists and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists are health care professionals responsible for administering anesthesia in the operating room, maintaining precise levels of consciousness throughout the operation, and  monitoring the patient’s cardiopulmonary function.

When anesthesia errors occur, the patient may suffer profound and irreversible brain damage due to a loss of oxygen to the brain.   Over the years, our firm has litigated a number of anesthesia negligence cases.  Some common anesthesia errors include:

  • Failing to administered the proper amount anesthesia, resulting in an overdose and an inadequate dose causing the patient to be awake during the surgery
  • Failing to properly place an endotracheal tube resulting in a failed intubation and respiratory arrest and brain injury
  • Failure to recognize common conditions affecting respiration such as allergic reactions which are often preventable and treatable
  • Drug interactions
  • Failing to properly administer oxygen during surgery
  • Failing to properly monitor the patient
  • Failing to properly position a patient during surgery
  • Use of defective medical equipment during sedation


If you or someone you love has been injured due an anesthesia error, call Breit Drescher Imprevento for a free case evaluation.
