Anesthesia errors are some of the most common medical mistakes made in the United States. Every year, thousands of people in Atlanta and throughout the country undergo surgery or other medical procedures requiring anesthesia. During these procedures, a patient is put into a state of unconsciousness or partial unconsciousness in order to prevent them from feeling pain. However, anesthesia errors can still occur, sometimes with devastating consequences.

At The Mabrey Firm, our Atlanta anesthesia error attorneys understand the pain and suffering that these mistakes cause. Our team is dedicated to helping patients who have been harmed by anesthesia errors receive the compensation they deserve.

What Is an Anesthesia Error?

Anesthesia errors are a common type of medical malpractice cases in the United States. During an anesthesiology procedure, a patient is put into a state of unconsciousness or partial unconsciousness in order to prevent them from feeling pain. During these procedures, a patient’s anesthesiologist is responsible for monitoring the patient’s vital signs and ensuring that they do not feel any pain. Anesthesia errors occur when the patient is not monitored properly, when the wrong amount of anesthesia is given, or when the anesthesia is administered incorrectly.

An anesthesia error can cause:

  • Damage to the patient’s lungs
  • Damage to the patient’s heart
  • Brain damage
  • Death

In some cases, an anesthesia error can cause a patient to wake up during surgery. In other cases, the patient wakes up while they are still under anesthesia, but they cannot move or speak. In these cases, the patient can experience extreme anxiety and confusion, which can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In other cases, the patient can experience brain damage or even be killed because they were not monitored properly while they were under anesthesia.
