Oftentimes, patients who are seriously injured need assistance breathing. In these cases, patients often undergo intubation, a process involving the insert of a long tube down the patient’s airway. The exterior part of the tube is then connected to a ventilator so that the patient receives a consistent flow of oxygen. The procedure can cause serious problems if performed incorrectly.
Complications during intubation can arise from the following mistakes:
- Incorrect tube placement in the esophagus
- The perforation of delicate tissue with the tubing
- Dislodging or disconnecting the tubing accidentally
- Over-inflating the tube
If a patient has previous medical conditions or issues involving their mouth or throat, such as a small or abnormally shaped throat, intubation becomes that much more difficult to perform safely. Complications can range from vocal cord paralysis to anoxic or hypoxic brain damage.
Prosecuting Intubation Errors
If an intubation complication occurs because of a medical professional’s negligence or inadequate training, you may be able to pursue just compensation for your injuries or the injuries of a loved one. At Cantor Stoneburner Ford Grana & Buckner, we network with respected medical professionals who often give testimony as to what they, or any reasonable physician, would have done under similar circumstances. If the intubation error was preventable or avoidable, you deserve compensation. Hold the responsible parties accountable with our skilled medical malpractice lawyers in Richmond!
