Search: anesthesia death

Somebody was looking for "anesthesia death" recently. This is what I have:

These women are some of those who died from mistakes or mishaps relating to anesthesia. For more about the underlying causes of deaths like these, see Anesthesia or Analgesia Related Deaths of Women From Legal Abortion: The Need for Increased Regulation

Angela Scott/Dolores Smith: In June of 1979, National Abortion Federation member Atlanta Women's Pavillion rose to new levels of incompetence when staff there managed to fatally injure two teenage abortion patients in less than an hour.

"Annie" Roe traveled from New Jersey to New York in 1971, for the safe, legal abortion that killed her.

Brenda Benton ended up in a hospital with liver failure, and died April 20, 1987.

Catherine Pierce languished in a coma for seven months before dying of complications from an abortion done at a National Abortion Federation member facility.

Darlene Wood underwent her fatal abortion in Temple University Hospital.

Dawn Mack was one of two patients -- both, coincidentally, named Dawn -- who died after anesthesia complications at Eastern Women's Center.

Dawn Ravenell
Thirteen-year-old Dawn's parents didn't know anything was amiss, until they got a phone call to come to the hospital right away, that Dawn was "fighting for her life."

Deanna Bell was only 13 years old when she was given massive doses of Brevitol for an abortion by Steve Lichtenberg.

Deborah Ann Lozinski, age 17, had languished for two months in a coma, hospitalized after an abortion at Medical Care Center in Woodbridge, New Jersey.

Debra Gray went to Hillview Women's Medical Center for an abortion on July 12, 1989. A nurse injected her with a fast-acting barbituate to prepare her for the abortion. Debra went into cardiac arrest.

Diane Watson: None of the four physicians on the premises performed CPR on Diane after she went into cardiac arrest.

Donna Heim: Her sister, who was in the waiting room at Her Medical Clinic, became alarmed at the intense staff activity, and asked a staffer about her sister. She was told Donna was fine. Then she saw an ambulance pull up to the building and stepped outside, where she observed Donna being transferred into the emergency vehicle.

Gail Mazo vomited and choked during her abortion at Mt. Sinai in New York.

Georgianna "Jeannie" English: Former criminal abortionist Milan Vuitch had been operating his clinic without a license for two years when 32-year-old Jeannie English came to him for an abortion on January 12, 1980. Vuitch administered general anesthsia for Jeannie, and she never woke up.

Gwendolyn Cliett was about to undergo an elective abortion at Presbyterian Hospital in Philadelphia when she reacted to anesthesia and died.

Jacqueline Reynolds underwent an abortion at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta on August 27, 1986. Due to inadequate oxygenation during general anesthesia, Jacqueline lapsed into a coma. She died on September 5.

Janet Lally Blaum: Her ex-husband sued abortionist Sydney Knight on behalf of the couple's children, alleging that Knight had administered a fatal dose of anesthesia while preparing Janet for the abortion.

K. B. : After K.B.'s death, the health department investigated and found a mystery: K.B.'s chart listed her post-operative condition as "pink, responsive, alert," even though she had gone into full cardio-respiratory arrest by the time indicated on the assessment.
