Lesiones: Lesiones cerebrales traumáticas
The plaintiff, a woman 29 years old, underwent a routine adult tonsillectomy. During surgery, her oxygen saturation levels dropped significantly, and she sustained a permanent hypoxic brain injury. Plaintiff alleged that her treating nurse anesthetist, anesthesiologist, and oral surgeon failed to appropriately obtain and maintain an airway during surgery.
As a result of her injuries, plaintiff sustained profound and permanent short-term memory deficits. She can no longer drive an automobile or obtain gainful employment. In addition, she requires assistance from others when engaging in many routine daily activities. The case was settled during mediation shortly before trial.
