Anesthesia Errors

Advances in anesthesia have made many surgeries and procedures possible, which, in turn, have saved many lives. However, anesthesia does carry risks, and anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists must ensure that the patient is cared for at a safe level of sedation.

Negligence can cause some common anesthesia mistakes, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Anesthesia awareness.
  • Anesthesia dosage error.
  • Delayed delivery.
  • Failure to intubate or injury caused by negligent intubation.
  • Failure to monitor the patient.
  • Failure to recognize complications.
  • Allowing a patient to go unattended.
  • The pulse oximeter alarm was turned off.
  • Improper administration of oxygen during surgery.
  • Unnecessarily prolonged sedation.
