“Going under the knife” are words that evoke fear from us, and we feel just that way when faced with a surgical procedure. Fortunately, modern advances in the field of anesthesia have been significant and make for a much less painful and safer surgical experience. We put our trust into anesthesiologists who have been specially trained and are a critical part of a surgical team. But when an error or negligent act occurs, your life is severely at risk and the repercussions are frightening. If you have experienced an injury in such a case of negligence or have lost a loved one to anesthesia malpractice, you must not let the consequences overwhelm you. Help is available by contacting our Las Vegas, Nevada medical malpractice attorneys.
Anesthesia is an important part of the surgery, dental procedures, and other medical treatments and it refers to the administration of drugs that can prevent and lessen pain during a procedure. Doctors must be careful to pre-screen a patient’s medical history and health issues before administering anesthesia. Improper dosages and use of the wrong drug can lead to cardiac arrest, stroke, coma, respiratory failure, brain damage, and even death. This can leave a patient with permanently debilitating physical handicaps or can rob a family of a loved one. The pain and suffering, lost income, impairments, and medical bills can be overwhelming and leave a person or family facing a mountain of grief, worry, and debt.
