Bay Park Community Hospital Anesthesia Injury

Anesthesia, used during medical procedures to decrease muscle reflexes and stress responses of the patient, can also pose serious injuries as well.

Administered by a medical professional prior to a surgical procedure begins, anesthesia prevents the feeling of sensation for a patient. They essentially experience a state of reversible amnesia, allowing the procedure to begin. However, there are some instances where the very thing that is supposed to help a medical procedure begin, causes injury to the patient. When this occurs, an anesthesia injury attorney should be consulted.

Potential Anesthesia Injuries

There are various risks of anesthesia, and if they occur due to the negligence of a medical professional, a medical malpractice claim can be made. The resulting injuries are listed below:

  • Injury to the tongue, lips, and mouth
  • Brain damage
  • Vocal cord damage
  • Elevated body temperature
  • Other abnormal reactions

The resulting injuries from anesthesia can occur with or without medical negligence. But, if a medical professional was negligent and did, in fact, cause the injury, a medical malpractice claim can be filed.
