2 common anesthesia errors

Having an anesthesiologist place you under anesthesia can prove highly unnerving, but more than 40 million patients across New York and the nation are “put under” every year. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we recognize that anytime medical professionals place you under anesthesia, you face certain dangers, and there is potential for error and hardship anytime you receive treatment using anesthesia.

According to Elcam Safety, medical errors are alarmingly common in hospitals and other medical environments these days, and many medical mistakes involve errors made using anesthesia. While some anesthesia errors can lead to only minor or moderate injuries or complications, others can prove far more serious and can even lead to death.

Just what types of anesthesia errors are today’s anesthesiologists making? In many cases, anesthesia mistakes involve improper dosing. Anesthesiologists can make dosing errors due to a number of different circumstances, but often, they do so because they are unfamiliar with the medical equipment used, or because they lack adequate experience in administering anesthesia. In about 5.6% of all cases, anesthesia dosing errors arise because of an anesthesiologist’s negligence or inattentiveness.

Anesthesia errors can also result from an anesthesiologist failing to regulate the flow of intravenous fluids. If the medical professional does not allow enough medication to flow through, a patient may end up feeling procedures he or she never should have. If the medical professional allows too much medication to flow through, it can lead to a host of complications, among them breathing issues, high blood pressure and headaches.
