All surgical procedures come with an inherent risk to the patient, no matter how simple or routine the procedure. However, that risk can be substantially heightened when anesthesia is administered.

Common Anesthesia Mistakes

The administration of anesthesia is an extremely important and delicate task that requires the hand of a highly trained, skilled doctor. These doctors have an enormous responsibility and cannot afford to make mistakes, as an error could mean the difference between life and death. Mistakes that are not fatal can still have serious consequences, causing things like blood pressure complications, organ or brain damage, seizures, stroke, and more.

Examples of anesthesia errors include:

  • Administering too much anesthesia
  • Administering too little anesthesia (anesthesia awareness)
  • Administering the wrong drug
  • Failing to properly monitor the patient
  • Delaying delivery of anesthesia
  • Administering anesthesia to a patient with an allergy to the drug
  • Failing to adequately instruct the patient before administering anesthesia (i.e. limiting liquid and food intake)
