Anesthesia complications can be the result of any number of factors but it can be particularly difficult for victims and loved ones to cope with those mistakes that are the result of a an equipment malfunction at a doctor’s office or a hospital.
If an equipment error occurred during your procedure that affected the regulation of anesthesia, speak with an Ohio malpractice claim attorney for more information and to determine whether or not you may be eligible to pursue a medical malpractice claim against the liable parties.
For instance, one possible equipment error could be in the flow meter. The flow meter regulates the quantities of anesthesia that are being used to safely put a patient to sleep.
Malfunctions with this small but vital mechanism could result in too much anesthesia being administered, which could cause permanent damage.
Alternatively, some anesthesia risks are also associated with too little anesthesia being administered, which could cause conscious sensation ranging from discomfort to severe pain.
We rely on the safety and efficiency of the technology that our medical professionals use to regulate, monitor, and augment our health and physical wellbeing. With so much riding on the ability of these machines to safely perform their intended functions, patients are entitled to the knowledge that every safety measure is being followed to the letter to defray the probability of anesthesia risks or complications.
