Transcript - Anesthesia Injuries
It's every patient's worst nightmare-waking up during surgery and not being able to move, talk, or even alert your doctor! This scenario may seem far fetched, but it actually happens. The phenomenon known as anesthesia awareness occurs during 20,000 to 40,000 surgeries every year. Victims experience everything from vague memories of pressure, pain and conversations, to full on consciousness--feeling every slice, poke, and prod. Anesthesia mistakes also contribute to 281 deaths every year in the United States. To avoid injuries, doctors must ask the right questions pre-surgery, be 100% accurate in their dosages, and monitor their patient with precision. Likewise, patients must also be well informed, honest, and accurate with their medical history and know the right questions to ask their doctor. Our goal at Moll Law Group is to prevent serious injuries and deaths from anesthesia mistakes, including the horrific mental and emotional distress suffered by anesthesia awareness victims.
