Types of Errors

Anesthesia refers to a temporary, medically induced state which causes the inability to feel pain and consciously respond. Doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, and other medical staff have a responsibility to make sure their patients do not suffer any further harm while under their care. However, mistakes continue to persist, mainly due to negligence or lack of training and experience.

The following are common types of anesthesia errors:

  • Administering too much of one or more anesthetic drugs
  • Administering too little of one or more anesthetic drugs
  • Administering an incorrect anesthesia drug
  • Delayed delivery of anesthesia
  • Failure to adequately instruct patients prior to anesthesia
  • Failure to properly monitor patients while under anesthesia
  • Failure to conduct a thorough review of patients’ medical history
  • Use of defective medical equipment and devices used to administer anesthesia

What is Anesthesia Awareness?

Anesthesia awareness refers to the rare but frightening phenomenon where a patient becomes conscious during their surgery. This occurrence has been found to cause psychological and emotional trauma both immediately following the surgery and even long-term.

One of the causes of anesthesia awareness can be improper administration of the anesthetic, as well as improper monitoring during surgery. An anesthesia awareness lawsuit can be difficult to prove given the lack of physical damage. However, if you believe you have suffered physical injury as a result of your anesthesia administration, you may have a claim.
