Special Services

Anesthesiologists call and email us weekly asking for advice on anesthesia liability topics in their practice.  At the request of policyholders, PPM produces “White Papers” to address a broad range of anesthesia liability topics through our first-hand experience, research and anesthesia expert opinions.

If you have other anesthesia liability questions, let us know, as PPM has probably addressed it before and can assist. PPM’s anesthesia specific focus and commitment gives you peace of mind and immediate access to attorneys whose working life is dedicated to improving patient safety as well as managing and defending anesthesia claims.

Topics include:

  • DEA Registration for a Credentialing Application
  • Drug Shortages and Alternatives
  • Dental Injury 
  • Multiple Doses Drawn From a Single Use Vial
  • Sugammadex Reversal to Avoid Malignant Hyperthermia
  • Off-label Use of Exparel for Regional Blocks
