Airway Malpractice and Suffocation Before Back Surgery

A middle-aged woman was in a hospital to have a routine, elective, back surgery. It was alleged that when the patient was in the operating room, after general anesthesia started and before the surgery began, the anesthesia provider repeatedly attempted to place the breathing tube for the patient (intubate), to the point where there was bleeding in the airway, instead of calling off the procedure. By the time the procedure was finally aborted, with the surgery never having been done, the lady experienced a lack of oxygen to her vital organs, including her heart and brain. While her heart damage largely healed, the lady was left with significant brain damage and memory problems in addition to her ongoing back problems. Mark Clore represented the lady and was able to secure a confidential settlement on her behalf.
