When you go in for an operation, whether it is a simple appendectomy or complex open heart surgery, there are multiple physicians and nurses in the room. You are under the care of numerous medical professionals, all of whom have a job to do and a standard to uphold. One of the most important members of your medical team is the anesthesiologist. This physician is essential to the procedure, controlling your level of consciousness during the operation, and ensuring life support systems like oxygen delivery.
Considering the importance of the anesthesiologist during a procedure, any negligence on their part can lead to you suffering significant injuries. If in the days and weeks following your operation, you realize you were injured in a way connected to the anesthesiologist’s duties, you have the difficult task of proving the anesthesiologist’s negligence during a medical malpractice claim.
