Anesthesia Medical Malpractice

Unbeknownst to many Chicago patients entering Chicago operating rooms is that the most dangerous aspect of a Chicago surgery is not the surgeon’s scalpel but rather the application of anesthesia. A Chicago anesthesiologist’s job is one that has zero room for error and the fact that medical insurance premiums for anesthesiologists are substantially higher than all other medical specialties reflects that. The surgery you need that anesthesia makes possible is the very same procedure that can severely injure or kill you if the Chicago anesthesiologist makes a mistake, or is negligent, and fails to administer the appropriate amount of drugs and properly monitor your status during surgery.

Being put under anesthesia is a major medical procedure that can have catastrophic consequences to a patient’s health when incorrectly performed. A patient is literally helpless under anesthesia and must trust the Chicago anesthesiologist and Chicago hospital staff to appropriately administer drugs and monitor his or her status. Thankfully, the majority of surgeries in America are performed under anesthesia without ill-effect. However, when a Chicago anesthesiologist commits mistakes the results can be devastating, even fatal.

Anesthesia medical malpractice can occur at any time during the Chicago surgical process, including in the operating room, during pre-operative preparation, within the confines of the recovery room, within the Chicago doctor’s office, and during childbirth. Often, the root cause of anesthesia medical malpractice is due to the Chicago anesthesiologist making simple errors in judgment or overlooking obvious signs that reflect danger to their patient including:

  • Defective equipment
  • Administering an overdose due to failing to adequately examine a patient’s history or administering the wrong dosage
  • Failing in their responsibility to properly educate the patient about food or alcohol restrictions before or after the procedure
  • Negligence in their responsibility to monitor a patient’s vital signs
  • Incorrectly incubating a patient

While the mistakes a Chicago anesthesiologist may make are subtle, the injuries sustained can be life altering or even fatal including:

  • Stroke
  • Heart attack
  • Brain Injury
  • A collapsed lung
  • Ulnar neuropathy

If you believe you or a loved one has been the victim of anesthesia medical malpractice, it is essential that you secure and preserve all records related to the procedure.
