Why A to Z for Anesthesiology

A to Z Hospitals’ anesthesiologists are one of the most respected practitioners in the hospital. They manage the breathing and airway, drug and fluid balance, and all the vital functions during surgeries, meaning they are responsible for a patient’s life during operation. Their immense expertise on the surgical table makes the procedure uncomplicated for the patient and undemanding for the surgeons.

Treatment & Procedures

The Different types of Anesthisia are

  • General Anesthesia: Where the patient is kept asleep and pain-free throughout the procedure using continuous administration of anaesthetics. At the end of the surgery, the effect of anaesthetics is reversed and he/she is woken up
  • Regional Anesthesia: Where the patient is awake but the part to be operated upon is made temporarily numb using an injection of local anesthetics. If the injection is made into the fluid surrounding the spinal cord, it is called spinal anesthesia. If local anesthetics are injected around the sheath covering the spinal cord, it is called epidural anesthesia. If the injection is made around individual nerve groups, it is called plexus block
  • Monitored Anesthesia Care: Some surgeries can be done using local anesthesia where the injection is made immediately around the part to be operated upon. This is suitable for relatively minor surgeries. However, if there is a worry that the patient can get anxious or that the surgery might be more extensive than anticipated, anesthetists are requested to be ‘stand-by’ to administer sedation, pain relief or anesthesia as required.

The Anesthesiology department is a busy department catering to over 25 different specialties on a daily basis. An anesthesiologist allows you to undergo the surgery safely and comfortably, they aid in pain management and good pain management leads to better surgical outcomes and helps in recovery by reducing postoperative complications.
