Types of Anesthesia Injuries

Even a small oversight can lead to long-lasting injury when anesthetics are involved. Such injuries can occur on account of problems ranging from improper dosage to defective equipment. While a person may not notice the effects of anesthesia errors during operation, they may become evident as the patient experiences various problems with their health during recovery.

Symptoms of anesthetic errors include:

  • Seizures or strokes
  • Affected hearing or vision
  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Nervous system/brain damage
  • Paralysis or coma
  • Anesthesia awareness

In some cases, anesthetic errors may even prove fatal. If you believe your post-surgery health issues were caused by improperly applied anesthetics, you need a qualified legal team at your side.
