You may have suffered a heart attack, brain injury, or other serious injury during your surgery. Now you are wondering what the true cause of the injury. Was it something that the surgeon did or failed to do?
In some cases the cause of an injury during surgery is due to the actions or inactions of the anesthesiologist. When an anesthesiologist makes an error these errors can sometimes be worse than a surgery error.
This is because an error made by an anesthesiologist can be permanent in nature. These errors can lead to a heart attack during surgery, brain injury, or some other type of serious medical injury.
An anesthesiologist can make errors by failing to review the patient’s history, failing to determine whether there are complications with certain medications, failing to monitor the patient during surgery, etc…
