You're Important And that is just how we will treat you

Chicago Anesthesia Lawyer

General anesthesia is usually given for surgical procedures that put the patient to sleep. Generally, anesthesia manipulates the brain to not respond to the pain signals that may be a product of the surgery. This anesthesia is usually given by a doctor certified specifically in administering the medicine based on weight and other health factors.

The wrong dose can cause a person not to be anesthetized for the full length of the surgery or a temporary coma for days after the surgery if too much is given. Unfortunately, as we at the Disparti Law Group are aware, far too many patients in Chicago are forced to deal with the repercussions and aftermath of general anesthesia errors. In many cases, there are costly medical bills and other expenses that may have been avoidable if only the anesthesiologist or other medical professionals had been more responsible.

Complications General Anesthesia Could Cause

Although the benefits usually outweigh the risks, there are many side effects that can lead serious consequences, even death. These complications include:

  • Allergic reaction
  • Brain damage
  • Nausea, sore throat, headache
  • Delayed return to normal mental function
  • Hyperthermia

This is just a short list of the undue harm that a healthy patient could suffer from when general anesthesia mistakes are made.
