Common Causes of Hypoxic & Anoxic Brain Injuries
There are many negligent medical errors that can result in a severe hypoxic or anoxic brain injury, including:
- Anesthesia complications such as esophageal intubation, improper placement of the tube and improper monitoring of the patient’s condition during surgery
- Birth injuries and fetal brain injury resulting in cerebral palsy, lasting developmental deficits or wrongful death
- Pulmonary embolism resulting in hypoxic brain injury or wrongful death
- Misdiagnosed heart attack or stroke resulting in interruption of blood flow to the brain
- Surgical errors such as improper monitoring of the patient’s blood oxygen saturation levels
- Inadequate monitoring of patient following surgery (failing to place the patient in a telemetry unit or ICU)
- Medication errors such as the administration of contraindicated drugs or drug overdose resulting in a stroke or seizure that causes brain injury
