Anaesthetic Awareness Compensation Claims

In the UK, it is estimated that every 1 or 2 in 1000 patients who undergo surgery where anaesthetic is used experience anaesthetic awareness.

Anaesthetic awareness is a term which is used to describe the pain and horrific sensation experienced by a patient who is aware of what is happening around him in the operation theatre even though the patient had been given a general anaesthetic.

Sensations of inadequate anaesthetic are:

  • Pain during the surgery
  • Paralysis and feeling of great distress that you are unable to alert anyone that you are awake
  • Psychological disturbances such as a feeling of dying, pain, depression, nightmares, panic attacks, anxiety, thoughts of suicide, agoraphobia and claustrophobia. When pregnant women experience anaesthetic awareness during childbirth, they often resent their babies and are frightened to become pregnant again.

Anaesthetic awareness can be a traumatic experience and it can also affect an individual’s lifestyle and the ability to work. If you or someone in your family has experienced anaesthetic awareness, you may be eligible to make an anaesthetic awareness compensation claim.
