Man Dies After Being Given Too Much Anesthesia During Dental Surgery

According to the Lake County Coroner’s Office, Corey Causey visited Dr. Aaron Swik at the Oral Maxillofacial Surgeons of Lake County facility on June 9 to have several teeth extracted.

After being put under anesthesia, Causey stopped breathing and went into cardiac arrest. He died the next day at a local hospital.

According to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek, Causey was given too high a dose of Propofol, an anesthetic that generally calls for at least two people to effectively administer the drug.
