What is an Anesthesia Medical Malpractice Case? (video)
There are different types of anesthesia cases but typically when people come to us with potential anesthesia cases it’s really dealing with general anesthesia related to a surgery. General anesthesia is when a patient is put out cold for a surgery and the anesthesiologist has the responsibility of providing the medications to the patient who is undergoing the procedure as well as monitoring the vital signs and making sure that the patient is properly oxygenated.
There could be anesthesia cases related to a medication error during the anesthesia process. There could be cases arising out of the lack of oxygen that goes to this patient causing some type of hypoxic injury which is an injury to the brain as a result of lack of oxygen; and it can also cause death.
