Affected by an Air Embolism – Get Legal Help Here
Normally, you don’t get air bubbles that course through blood vessels, whether it’s in veins or arteries. When this happens, you have to suspect negligence especially if one develops what’s called an air embolism during routine surgery. An air embolism is a pocket of air that breaches blood vessels, presenting a health emergency due to its likelihood to cause a health event such as a stroke. Air embolisms usually happen in veins, but air embolisms affecting the artery can be very dangerous and must be resolved once the physician suspects the same. Medical malpractice can help you get justice and compensation in case you suffered an air embolism, and it all begins with contacting a medical malpractice embolism attorney.

Here are some of the medical procedures that can cause air embolism:
- Improper catheter removal. This is a procedure that must be done with great care and skill, and rushing it may introduce air bubbles into the patient’s bloodstream.
- Ruptured tubing can introduce air into IV apparatus, causing an air embolism
- Improper priming of tubing. Tubing must be primed before the patient is attached, and it must be done properly. If safety protocol isn’t followed, air might get into the tubing.
- Syringe misuse might introduce air into the vein, due to a careless or intoxicated physician
- The installation of a defective heart stent
- Failure to follow safety protocol during open heart surgery
- Improper insertion of jugular vein IV line
Lawsuit for Air Embolism – Call us TODAY to File.
Insertion of any medical devices or tubing is a very sensitive affair. To this end, doctors must follow protocol and provide you with a certain standard of care you can expect from other physicians in the same specialty, and in the same medical circumstances. If this standard of care is breached due to negligence, leading to your suffering health complications such as a stroke or heart attack, you may be able to hold both the physician and the hospital accountable for their actions by filing a medical malpractice claim, which will help you recover damages for things such as past and future medical care, cost of rehabilitation post-stroke, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, lost wages, funeral costs if your loved one died, and so much more. There’s a whole lot more we’ve left out in this post, and because of this, we’d love for you to give us a call NOW at (773) 906-4833 to learn more about your legal options for justice and compensation. Thanks for choosing us, and we look forward to helping you.
