Intubation Expert Witnesses

As coronavirus has spread through the country, hospitals have been inundated with COVID-19 patients and healthcare professionals have put in tremendous effort to curb infections. But for the most severe cases of this respiratory virus, medical professionals must resort to endotracheal intubation to put patients on ventilators to aid breathing. Of course, emergency medicine and treatment throughout a public health crisis is not without allegations of liability and negligence. As you prepare an intubation medical malpractice or other related COVID-19 emergency care case, it will be important to consult with an intubation expert witness who can speak to the standard of care for emergency COVID-19 treatment.

An intubation expert witness can discuss:

  • Side effects and complication of intubation
  • Medical scenarios requiring intubation for COVID-19 patients
  • Challenges related to supply shortages (ventilators, masks, gloves, gowns)
  • State-specific liability immunity for healthcare providers and facilities
  • Pandemic planning and contagion training
  • Changes to hospital and care protocols brought on by COVID-19
  • Implications of over-capacity facilities
