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
  • Asphyxiation
  • Birth defects
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Coma
  • Death

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.
