Some Texas residents may have total faith in their doctors or the surgeons who are booked to perform surgical procedures on them. However, along with a surgeon are a host of other professionals and medical personnel who play a role in proceedings. Even if the surgeon’s work is exemplary, an anesthesia error can have devastating consequences.
Anesthesia is carried out by professionals who are highly trained in monitoring the pain, unconsciousness and vital signs of a patient during a surgical procedure. Adjustments must be made according to the observations of the anesthesiologist throughout the time of the procedure, and when mistakes are made, complications can arise. However, if an error is made, it will be nearly impossible for a patient to know the details of it and to prove it.
