Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry about the loss of your brother.
how old was he?
his oxygen and heart should have been monitored during the eye exam. that needs to be confirmed. if his pulse oxygen levels and heart rate were monitored during the eye exam, they should have seen his oxygen levels drop and they could have given him more oxygen during his eye exam.
he should have had an autopsy after his passing to check his heart and look for causes for his heart attack.
5.5mg of fentanyl per ml is a concentration of fentanyl in the liquid he was given. it is very common to give fentanyl as a pain medication as part of anesthesia to help him be out of pain and for him to sleep during the eye surgery.
the number of ml injected into his veins would tell the total dose of fentanyl use. most likely he was not overdosed on fentanyl and higher doses of fentanyl would not have caused a heart attack.
did you hire a lawyer to help you with your side of the case?
