A 5 year old Chicago girl, who entered a coma while sedatedÂ for undergoing a dental treatment of 2 cavities and caps being placed on her lower teeth. has passed away.
It has been said that she was given a triple dose of sedatives _ an oral agent, an intravenous drug and nitrous oxide gas _ during Saturday's exam at Little Angel Dental.
The girl's mother, Ommettress Travis, has said she was asked to leave the room during the half-hour procedure. When she returned, her daughter was lying in the dental chair, not breathing, Travis said.
From what I understand, theÂ familys' attorneys are getting the equipment that was used during the sedation checked Â by professionals, and are also checking other dental records etc. to see if their case has any merit.
