The consequences can be shocking for you if you are suffering from anesthesia error caused by an anesthesiologist. This West Palm Beach Anesthesia Error/Mistake Attorney will help you to get compensated for that situation. Anesthesia is the use of medicine or injection to block the feeling of pain or sensation and is commonly used by doctors, so the patients can tolerate more during surgical operations.

An anesthesiologist is a doctor who practices anesthesia and makes the patients comfortable during procedures. Anesthesiologists specialize in developing anesthetic plans and the administration of anesthetics. But an overdose of anesthesia can cause much harm to the patients and can cause coma or even death.

Also, many allergic reactions develop in patients due to anesthesia errors or mistakes. The doctor must observe the usual warning signs of allergic reactions like shortness of breath etc. under anesthesia. If the allergic reactions develop in the patient’s body caused by the drug, the anesthesiologist is responsible for the consequences that occur to the patient. It’s his or her responsibility to check if the drug has had any negative side effects or not.

There are different types of drugs used in anesthesia like benzodiazepines, propofol etc. Anesthesiologists also are responsible for monitoring their patients during the anesthesia. During the surgery, the anesthesiologist will monitor the patient's blood pressure, temperature, level of consciousness, oxygen level and heartbeat. During general anesthesia, the anesthesiologist will monitor each breath. Patients who survive anesthesia error or mistake may require nursing home or assisted care and deserve to be compensated for their loss.

During a surgical procedure, an anesthesiologist gives enough oxygen to the patient by using the process of intubation. Intubation is the process of inserting a tube through the mouth or windpipe. This is done during anesthesia or sedation so that a patient can get enough oxygen. It helps the patients to inhale oxygen into their lungs. Intubation causes serious issues for the patients if performed wrongly or if medical negligence occurs. Intubation errors or mistakes may cause catastrophic injuries like hypoxic events and resulting brain damage. This can be deadly also.

Furthermore, Injection errors also may occur during anesthesia. Injections are used to inject the anesthesia drug into the veins and they are administrated by anesthesiologists. When this injection error occurs due to the administration of the anesthesiologist, a major or serious injury can develop. Infections occur if the drug is administrated in dirty and unsanitary conditions. Not only the anesthesiologist but also the management is held responsible if any anesthesia error occurs to the patient during the surgical procedure.

The anesthesiologist carefully monitors the patient's vital signs and comfort and makes the appropriate adjustments in anesthesia. They may use anesthesia to put the patient into an “induced coma”. An “induced coma” is the process when a patient receives a measured dose of an anesthetic to cause a temporary coma or unconsciousness. This type of coma is used to protect the brain from swelling by the cerebral blood flow. It may promote healing and makes the patient better. However, if the anesthesia is allowed to last too long, then terrible consequences may result.
