Pittsburgh Anesthesia Error Lawyer
Medical Malpractice Attorney Seeking Justice For The Injured Throughout Western PA
Practically every surgery a patient undergoes begins with the patient receiving some form of anesthesia. Without proper and safe anesthesia, surgeons cannot do their jobs and the patient is left vulnerable to suffer needless harm. There are risks associated with all types of anesthesia. Some of the most common of anesthesia errors include:
- Anesthesia dosage error
- Delayed anesthesia delivery
- Failure to Monitor a Patient
- Dangerously prolonged sedation
- Failure to recognize and respond to anesthesia complications
- Failure to properly inform a patient of instructions before, during, or after the procedure
- Faulty equipment
- Turning off the alarms on patient vital sign monitors
- Failure to intubate
