Three-Year Old Dies from Anesthesia Error

On July 16, 2016, a routine trip to the dentist quickly turned into tragedy for a California family. Their three-year old daughter was scheduled for relatively minor dental procedures. Because the procedures involved multiple teeth, the family relied upon expert opinions and elected to have their daughter undergo general anesthesia. The procedures, which began at 9:30 A.M., were taking longer than expected, and the family began to worry. After being placed under general anesthesia, their daughter had stopped breathing. At 10:30 A.M., paramedics rushed through the office doors and hurried to her room. Their daughter was taken to San Ramon Regional Medical Center where she was pronounced dead after arrival.
