When a medical procedure necessitates anesthesia, you expect that the doctors involved will provide appropriate care. Yet sometimes mistakes are made, with devastating and even tragic results.
Anesthesia-related errors can occur in many forms, such as:
- Failure to properly intubate the patient, leading misplacement of the tube placed in the stomach instead of the lung and causing serious damage
- Over-anesthetization, leading to hypotension, spinal cord injury, stroke, brain damage and heart attack
- Misuse of spinal anesthetics, leading to damage to the spinal cord and brain
