Propofol® Attorneys Jacksonville

FDA Recall, Warning or Action: The FDA notified healthcare professionals of a nationwide recall on three (3) lots of Propofol® because of particles embedded in the glass that are visible. If these particles were injected into a person, there is chance of injury requiring medical attention.

Healthcare providers expect pharmaceutical manufacturers to develop and deliver drugs and medical products that do not put the patient’s well-being at risk. Our accident lawyers work meticulously with medical experts and design engineers to identify potentially harmful drugs, bad warning labeling, insufficient medical directions, device failures and adverse outcomes. In some incidences, the pharmaceutical company or distributor will have already taken steps to improve the product labeling with adequate instructions or warnings.

Side Effects of Propofol Use

Propofol® (diprivan) is an intravenous sedative-hypnotic drug for use in inducing and maintaining sedation or anesthesia. Possible side effects or negative patient outcomes include:

  • Airway Obstruction
  • Apnea
  • Hypoventilation
  • Dyspnea
  • Death

NOTE: The use of Propofol® for both adult and pediatric ICU sedation has been associated with organ system failures and metabolic derangements called Propofol Infusion Syndrome which can cause death.
