Peripheral Nerve Injury caused by Venipuncture -or Insertion of IV solution into the arms or hands:

Nerve injuries due to venipuntcure mishaps can be permanent resulting in the complete or partial loss of sensation, loss of motor function in the hands and arms and in some cases extreme long term pain. Nerves in the arms and hands are extremely susceptible to damage and are connected to the brain via the spinal cord providing the hand and arms with sensation and the ability to move. There are three degrees or classifications of nerve damage, neuropaxia, axonotmesis, and neurotmesis.  The most severe types of nerve damage can result in the complete lacerations of the axons of the nerve requiring extensive medical intervention including revision surgery. Other treatments for nerve damage may include
  • Physical therapy including rehabilitation
  • Message therapy and Acupuncture
  • The use of medication
  • Nerve Graft surgery
  • Nerve transfer surgery
Sadly in some instance the nerves that have sustained extreme damages cannot be repaired sufficiently via the use of therapy or surgical methods. These patients will have to withstand permanent pain, discomfort and the loss of mobility to arms and hands. Other Injuries Caused by the Negligent Insertion of IV’s and Venipunture: In many instances victims of IV insertion malpractice experience multiple medical complications other that nerve damage. Other severe complications may include
  • CRPS – complex regional pain syndrome
  • Air embolism
  • Neurotoxicity
  • Compartment Syndrome
  • Serious infection
