Anesthesia is one of the blessings of modern medicine, allowing surgery and other medical procedures to be performed without pain. But used incorrectly, serious anesthesia injury can result. The Law Office of Michael J. Weiss has successfully represented clients in anesthesia malpractice lawsuits. If you believe you or a family member has been affected by anesthesiologist malpractice, it's important to know and preserve your rights.
A variety of anesthetics are used in medicine, and they may be administered by endotracheal intubation, epidurally (through the spinal column), or locally (at the location on the body where a medical procedure is to be performed). When administered or monitored incorrectly, anesthesia injuries can include brain damage, paralysis, stroke, nerve damage, persistent vegetative state, death, and other serious problems. Anesthesiologists and registered nurses alike may be held responsible for anesthesia malpractice, as well as the surgeons who fail to monitor a patient's condition while under anesthesia.
