Anesthesiologists are physicians that specialize in local, regional and general anesthesia as well as sedation. They administer anesthesia and monitor patients undergoing surgical and Obstetrical procedures as well as endoscopies and MRI. Many anesthesiologists are experts in pain medicine as well as pain management. They will occasionally serve as a medical expert witness in the area of anesthesia and its application during surgery as well as with pain management issues. If you’re looking for an anesthesiology expert, here is what you need to make sure they possess.

Practical Experience

It’s important that an expert medical witness in anesthesiology possess practical experience, including recent experience administering and managing anesthesia in surgery. This experience should also include overseeing consultations with patients, particularly if those patients are in a semi or unconscious state.

Certifications and Licenses

The clinical expert in anesthesiology for your case should be a specially trained nurse anesthetist or a physician anesthesiologist. An anesthetist has to undergo significant training and testing and is only allowed to monitor or aid an anesthesiologist or administer anesthesia on a very minor surgical basis. An anesthesiologist has completed medical school as well as an internship and residency and is a full-fledged doctor. They also must complete specialized training and achieve a series of certifications as well as a state licensing certification, which can be different in each state.

It is important that they are licensed in the state where your case will be heard mainly because each state does have different standards. While the basics are the same no matter where you go there are specific requirements, per state, that could affect their testimony as it pertains to your case in the areas of applicability and admissibility. They also must actively keep their certification updated; certifications typically run on a 10-year cycle. During that time the physician must earn credits for continuing education through a combination of classroom courses, training sessions and practical examinations.

Demeanor

Finally, an informal criterion for a medical expert witness, regardless of their specialty, is a demeanor that will play well in a courtroom. Your attorney will want to see the expert witness they select in action; even if they are new at being an expert witness you both want to put them through a series of tests in a courtroom-like environment to make sure that their personality will be an attribute to your case and not a detriment.

What is The Role of an Anesthesiology Expert Witness?

From parenting experts to medical to financial to forensic, there are many types of expert witnesses you can call on for your case. These professionals are highly knowledgeable with many years of experience, training, and education. Their unique skills and expertise often help the judge or jury better understand complex information and can provide essential details to support your case.

Anesthesiology expert witnesses provide crucial insight with their professional opinions, testimony, or witness reports regarding sedation, pain management, pharmacology, and more. Their role typically includes:

  • Delivering general anesthesia to surgery patients.
  • Ensuring they’re unconscious for invasive operations.
  • Performing other specialized surgery techniques in their practice.
  • They often do ample research, evaluating patients before, during, and after surgery to make diagnoses, aid breathing or circulation, prevent infections, and more.

Additionally, anesthesiology expert witnesses can offer knowledge into cases involving most things related to surgery, with subjects ranging from medical malpractice to car accidents to chronic pain and beyond. They can provide explanations of technical concepts or professional standards of care in airway or cardiac resuscitation, life support, emergency medicine, and more. Many also have experience managing and maintaining anesthesia equipment, stabilizing critical patients in intensive care units, relieving cancer pain, performing blood transfusion therapies or respiratory therapies, etc. With broad expertise covering a variety of medical subjects, they can be an invaluable asset for a variety of legal cases.

Things to Consider Before Hiring an Anesthesiology Expert Witness

When searching for an anesthesiology expert witness, it’s important to consider how they can best meet your needs, either as a consulting expert or a testifying expert. Both roles can help attorneys prepare questions for testimony, interrogations, or depositions. They can further offer analysis to counter the opposing counsel’s testimony, provide insight for settlement negotiations, etc.

In all cases, it’s also essential to note that an anesthesiology expert witness has a duty to the court to be fair, honest, unbiased, and objective, even if it’s damaging to their client’s case. Each task they carry out should be done with due care and impartiality. Their opinions and testimony should only be provided if they’re knowledgeable of the subject or problem, and if not, they must state that the topic is beyond their expertise.

Furthermore, attorneys must carefully consider the qualifications of each expert. One who is not adequately qualified can have disastrous adverse effects by contradicting their client’s case. Before hiring, it’s crucial to confirm their expertise and ensure they fully understand all case evidence. With proper vetting, the right anesthesiology expert witness can be appointed who will add the most value to the case.
