NY Anesthesia Accident Lawyers

Because anesthesia errors in New York can result in serious injuries, anesthesiologists must take certain precautions to prevent foreseeable harm. For instance, anesthesiologists should examine the patient’s medical charts to note any potential drug interactions, closely monitor patients who are under anesthesia and measure the correct dosage for each patient. When an anesthesiologist or other medical professional fails to carry out these and other duties, they may be liable for any anesthesia accidents which result.

What are the Causes of Anesthesia Errors?

Possible anesthesia errors which can result from improper administration or monitoring can involve:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Incorrect dosage
  • Over-sedation
  • Delayed anesthesia administration

When a patient is supplied an inadequate or delayed dosage of anesthesia, they may experience anesthesia awareness. A type of anesthesia error, anesthesia awareness occurs when a patient is aware of the procedure and their pain, but they are unable to move or communicate their suffering. Anesthesia errors can result in psychological trauma, including panic and anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, sleep disorders and extreme fear of doctors and medical settings.
