Effects of Anesthesia Errors
Anesthesia refers to the use of various drugs to induce a temporary, medically
controlled unconscious state most often used for surgical purposes. When
properly administered, a patient is supposed to be unconscious and unable
to feel pain, giving doctors the opportunity to perform various medical
procedures without any physical distress. If these drugs are administered
improperly, serious damage can be done to a patient.
The following injuries can all result from improper anesthesia use:
- Blurred vision
- Organ damage
- Birth defects
- Spinal cord injury
These injuries can be sustained if an anesthesiologist administers too
much, too little, or the wrong type of drug before a procedure. Additionally,
doctors may sometimes overlook the possible reactions that certain drugs
may have with each other, or administer a drug that the patient is allergic
to. Regardless of the circumstances, these types of medical errors are
extremely serious and must not be tolerated.
