Anesthesia Complications

Medical Malpractice Law

Anesthesia Complications

Located in Memphis, TN

Many anesthesia complications happen because a patient is not properly evaluated before a procedure or carefully monitored afterward. Patients should never die or suffer serious injury during surgery or immediately afterward because of adverse reactions to anesthesia.

Don’t let a hospital or doctor tell you these things happen in the course of medical care and cannot be prevented. Some of these actions most certainly can be avoided, and the Chiozza Law Firm will let you know it their actions were within the normal standard of care.

Anesthesia comes in one of three forms: general anesthesia, regional anesthesia, and local anesthesia. While the use of local anesthesia is not risky and rarely leads to legal complications, the use of general anesthesia and regional anesthesia both can lead to legal battles.

Possible complications that could result from anesthesia include the following:

  • Damage to teeth
  • Backache
  • Cardiovascular issues
  • Respiratory issues
  • Hypothermia
  • Nerve damage
  • Brian damage

Specific issues that could result from anesthesia include the following:

Anaphylaxis

This occurs when there is an allergic reaction that could be caused by the anesthesia

Pneumonitis

This occurs when vomit gets into lungs, causing lung inflammation and infection

Peripheral nerve damage

This occurs when a nerve has been in a similar position for a prolonged period of time

Total spinal block

This occurs when amounts of anaesthetic drugs get into the spinal cord

If you or a loved one have experienced any of these complications as a result of an anesthetic procedure, you may have a medical malpractice case against the the company that performed the procedure.
