FDA Warns of Dangers of Anesthesia to Developing Brains

The Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning regarding the use of certain types of anesthesia in children and pregnant women. According to the release, “repeated or lengthy use of general anesthetic and sedation drugs during surgeries or procedures in children younger than 3 years or in pregnant women during their third trimester may affect the development of children’s brains.”

To help protect women and children who may be harmed by anesthesia, the FDA is now requiring warning labels to be placed on general anesthesia and sedation medications, and instruction healthcare professionals to carefully monitor the use of these drugs. Sadly, this warning comes only after the damage has occurred and may fail to fully prevent injury in the future.

When your child suffers injury due to dangerous drugs or medications, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, home and lifestyle modifications, emotional suffering, and other related economic and noneconomic damages. Our dangerous medication lawyers have decades of combined experience and a proven track record holding pharmaceutical companies, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals accountable for the injuries they cause. We are here to stand by your family’s side and take your case as far as needed to secure every penny you are due. Call us at (800) 504-0281  to schedule a free consultation and learn more.

Anesthesia can be medically necessary – even for small children – and should be used when needed. However, use of sedatives must be carefully measured and administered in a way consistent with accepted standards of patient care. If you suspect improperly administered or excessive exposure to a dangerous medication has caused brain damage in your child, please contact GoldenbergLaw to schedule free case evaluation.
