Anaesthesia During and After Surgery

Negligent Anaesthetic Treatment

During surgery, the Anaesthetist’s duty is to keep the patient in a state of controlled consciousness. The Anaesthetist must monitor the patient throughout the surgery and be alert to any potential complications (patient becoming conscious or feeling pain, patient losing too much blood) which could arise. If a warning sign appears they must react quickly to prevent/correct the complication. 

Post-surgery, the Anaesthetist must ensure that the patient recovers consciousness and that they haven’t experienced any serious ill effects of the anaesthetic. 

Good anaesthetic care is often taken for granted by patients who are understandably concerned about the surgical outcome of their procedure/operation. However, even a minor mistake made by the Anaesthetist can cause a devastating injury.

If you or a family member have suffered a serious injury which you believe was as a result of negligent anaesthetic treatment, you may be entitled to bring a medical negligence claim.
