Bronx Anesthesia Malpractice Attorney: Anesthesia Errors in NYC

Anesthesia errors do not only occur in the operating room. Other anesthetics such as nerve blocks and epidurals are sources of anesthesia errors. There are generally four types of anesthesia: general, spinal, regional, and local. Conscious sedation also utilizes anesthetics and is commonly used in procedures like colonoscopies. Epidurals are generally used for surgery involving the lower body, abdomen or pelvis and can also be used to minimize a mother's pain during labor. Nerve blocks require injecting anesthetic drugs near a nerve to temporarily block the nerve's ability to transmit pain signals to the brain. Anesthesia is also given by dentists to numb the skin and subcutaneous tissues.

Failure to properly prescribe, administer, monitor or react to a change in a patient's condition can be malpractice. Anesthesia complications can cause paralysis, long-term coma and brain damage. A Bronx Anesthesia Malpractice Attorney can help.
