Death Caused by Air Embolism
On 28th February 2012, Mr H suffered a massive air embolism when a catheter that had been used to provide dialysis was removed from his neck. The air embolism caused an obstruction to the flow of blood to the right side of Mr H’s heart, causing him to suffer a cardiac arrest. At the time of Mr H’s death, an air embolism was classed by the NHS as a “Never Event”. The list of “Never Events” were put together and the aim of the policy was to reduce “Never Events” to zero, as they were classed to be intolerable and inexcusable.
