Errors made by anesthesiologist could result in any number of very serious conditions, including blindness, death, and other permanent conditions.
Because anesthesiologists are trained to identify situations that may result in long term damage, they are expected to adjust treatment to prevent patient harm. Failure to do so, or failure to monitor the patient’s condition, could be considered negligence.
Other errors include incorrect dosages, using defective equipment, and errors during intubation.
