Anesthesiologist Negligence Lawyers NYC
Spinal anesthesia (sometimes called an epidural) is recognized as an alternative to general anesthesia in certain types of surgeries. Epidurals are frequently given to women while enduring labor, although epidurals are used in many other procedures as well. Spinal anesthesia, like any type of anesthesia has the potential for complications. Anesthesiologists and other professionals must take proper steps to minimize the risk and address potential hazards. Errors in spinal anesthesia can create life-changing injuries and even death. Some of the injuries include:
- Paraplegia: Spinal anesthesia is typically administered at the lowest part of the spinal cord. When medical errors lead to paralysis, the body's lower half suffers the worst injuries.
- Nerve damage: When the needle touches a nerve, serious damage can result.
- Cardiac arrest
- Dropped foot
- Spinal cord leak
- Injury to the dura
