Anesthesia Errors

Queens Anesthesia Error Lawyer

Exposing Anesthesiologist Mistakes/Wrongdoing

An anesthesiologist will play a crucial role in any invasive medical procedure. Typically, they are responsible for administering anesthesia and monitoring the patient during the procedure.

If an anesthesiologist makes a mistake, is careless, or in any way fails to provide a standard level of care, this may result in serious injury or even the wrongful death of a patient.

Mistakes happen, but in the medical field, professionals are held to a higher standard of care. If you or someone you love was harmed because an anesthesiologist provided less than the accepted standard of care based on his or her knowledge, training, and tools, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice action.

Queens anesthesia error attorney David Kates can offer insight regarding your options and rights.

Uses of Anesthesia

Anesthesia is a vital aspect of modern medicine which allows surgeons to perform life-saving procedures that would otherwise be impossible.

With correct use, anesthesia can control a patient's pain levels, induce unconsciousness, and suppress reflexive functions, allowing doctors to operate without the risk of physical interference from the patient.

The two most common types of anesthesia used in medicine are local and general anesthesia. Local anesthesia is typically used for outpatient procedures and can be administered directly to the surgical site, while general anesthesia is used to induce unconsciousness for more major procedures.

Common Anesthesia Mistakes

Like most medications and medical procedures, anesthesia comes with certain risks. Doctors are trained to evaluate each patient's medical history and unique needs to determine the type and precise dose of anesthesia to needed to safely perform each procedure.

There are circumstances, however, where a medical professional’s act or failure to act can be linked with an adverse outcome. In taking on an anesthesia error case, your attorney’s goal will be to prove actionable medical negligence.

He is empathetic, professional, and tough when necessary. I'm so thankful for his tenacity with my trial, and for never backing down when I sometimes felt all hope was lost - David never let me lose sight of the bigger picture, ever! Thank you, David... you truly were remarkable.
