Although all types of anesthesia involve some risk, major anesthesia injuries are unlikely unless some form of malpractice is involved. The specific risk of anesthesia injuries depends on many factors including a particular patient’s health and the type of anesthesia used. Generally, the risk of suffering anesthesia injuries is higher in older people. Certain medical conditions, such as heart, circulation, or nervous system problems, also increase patients’ risk of suffering anesthesia injuries.

Anesthesia injuries can occur for many reasons. For example, anesthesia injuries sometimes occur due to poor communication between medical staff members, when a doctor or anesthesiologist fails to correctly read a patient’s chart, or because the technicians administering the anesthesia lack the proper background and training. Some other possible causes of anesthesia injuries include:

  • lack of informed consent
  • lack of oxygen
  • using the wrong drug or dosage
  • allergic reactions
