Overview of anesthesia errors and their symptoms

Next to the surgeon, one could argue that the most important medical professional in the operating room is the anesthesiologist. While Kentucky residents might not realize it, this doctor administers very potent, and potentially dangerous, drugs to keep a patient sedated and comfortable during surgery.

Wrong site surgery is more common than one might think

One of the nightmare scenarios a Kentucky resident might have before going in to surgery is that the doctor in charge is not going to operate on the correct organ or body part. In extreme cases, doctors have even been known to amputate the wrong limb, meaning a patient winds up with no legs rather than just one leg.

The causes of truck jackknifing

Many truck accidents happen in Kentucky when a tractor-trailer or other large commercial vehicle jackknifes while traveling on this state's highways. A jackknife happens when a truck's tires are no longer gripping the road to maintain traction meaning, just like a person who has lost his balance, the truck will start to travel in two different directions, the trailer going one way and the truck itself going another.
