The article doesn't say that the airway was not monitored. She could have had a very drastic reaction to the sedation. If this was the first time she had surgery it could be an unknown allergy or reaction. The privacy act dictates who the medical staff can and cannot talk with regarding a patient.

My deepest condolences to her family and friends, especially her school mates.

I am so sorry for this family. You are in my prayers. What happened at the dentist's office? It just said complication and she was rushed to the hospital where she passed two weeks later. Was it a terrible allergic reaction to the anesthesia or what? Again, I'm sorry to this family, such a young life, taken way too soon. God bless and you're all in many prayers tonight.

Sometimes the medical staff ignores the patients wishes as to who can know what is going on. My husband and I both have each other listed on our consent forms and sometimes we run into problems getting information regarding the other. What is the point of filling out the paperwork just so that they can ignore it. You CAN dictate who can be made aware of your medical issues. The privacy act was not intended to keep families and friends in the dark but the medical community is so scared of being sued, i guess they would rather do nothing.

This is a horrible, tragic and sad story. RIP little one.

Anesthesia, in any form, administered by anyone less than a professionally trained anesthetist, is very risky. My mother is a retired Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. She has always said that the skill in anesthesia is not in putting you to sleep but in being able to wake you up...and knowing what to do when things go sour.

Do you think they meant that he had not consented (signed a consent form) to have 13 teeth removed? she states he was to have wisdom teeth out, thus signed consent for wisdom teeth removal, not removal of 13 teeth.

This article does not clearly state the nature of her death. Why is that?

The doctor is probably going to be sued. Can't blame the family if he did something wrong. If it were a reaction to anethsia you would think they would have said.

This is what happens when physicians, dentists, oral surgeons, etc... elect to do these sort of procedures in their offices or surgery centers. The majority of the time no problem, but when something goes wrong it goes bad quick. Check with any surgery center, they are required to have transfer agreements with area hospitals. The primary reason docs do procedures in office or surgery centers is money based and in the majority of cases own or are ivested in the center.

This is part of why the USA ranks 37th in overall health care. When we have a 3d world system we get 3d world results. Sad, but true.

I have read about deaths due to anesthesia allergies. Sadly, you might not know you're allergic until you undergo the anesthesia. I taught a little boy who had lost a family member to that. When the boy was due to have surgery, he had to undergo many tests to see if he might have the same allergy. He was ok and came through it very well. I'm not sure this is the case with this young girl, but it could be a possibility. My prayers for her family.

NO! This is what happens when an 80 year old doctor thinks he is still on top of his game and where, in fact, he is too feeble to be practicing dentistry on people.
Don't the parents realize this fact?
She should have been to a Ped Dentist!
Why is it that doctors everywhere think they can still have patients at this old age?
Number one, they are not even up to the new findings, even though they have to take continuing courses, that doesn't mean they attend the seminars.
Number two, they migrate to Florida and work part time and some of them see patients in between holes{gulf}!
Give it up while you're ahead.
There should be limits of age when practicing on people.

You might be onto something there. Airline pilots are forced to retire at a set age. Seems like a case could be made for those practicing medicine as well.
