Types of Anesthesia Errors

An anesthesiologist must ask a patient appropriate questions about his or her medical history to discover any potential problems with administering anesthesia. Similarly, the anesthesiologist must also explain what may happen to the individual if he or she does not adhere to any preoperative rules (e.g., not eating prior to surgery). A failure to do either of these things could be grounds for a medical malpractice claim. Many variety of mistakes related to anesthesia can also happen during surgical procedures.

These include:

  • Not tracking the patient's heart rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs.
  • Administering too much anesthesia to an individual.
  • Intubating the individual incorrectly.
  • The use of faulty or broken equipment.
