The Health Consequences of Anesthesia Errors

Researchers from John Hopkins have said that preventable medical errors are the third leading cause of death across the US. However, most people do not realize that anesthesia errors are actually a quite common form of medical mistake, and they can lead to significant harm for a patient.

When we turn to data from the Patient Safety Authority, we can see that millions of people undergo general anesthesia each year in this country. However, according to estimates from the PSA, approximately 100 patients experience some sort of anesthesia accident each day. Additional studies have pointed out that anesthesia complications have been increasing for more than 10 years.

At Jacobs & Jacobs, we know that anesthesia errors can lead to a range of complications, including the following:

  • Brain damage due to lack of oxygen
  • Blood clots
  • Seizures
  • Strokes
  • Heart attacks
  • Nerve injuries
  • Birth injuries and birth defects
  • Paralysis
  • Coma
  • …and more

New Haven anesthesia errors occur due to a wide variety of reasons, including medical providers failing to adequately address patient medical history. Errors are also caused by failures to check for contraindications between anesthesia medications and a patient’s medications. All anesthesiologists must be adequately trained and perform their jobs appropriately every single time. Failing to do so could result in a serious injury.
