Quick Facts To Read Under Anaesthesiology
Services that we offer
We have the latest and safest drugs required for giving anesthesia to patients to ensure optimum care. It is also backed up by monitors to track the condition and reaction, if any. The type of monitor that we equip include:
- Capnography: This monitor measures the partial pressure of carbon dioxide at the time of exhalation of the air. It gives the doctor important information regarding the patient’s condition if there is any respiratory distress, shock, or cardiac arrest.
- Pulse oximeters: It is a painless ad non-invasive test that helps the doctor check the oxygen level in your blood. It efficiently detects even the slightest bit of change in the oxygen carried to your heart.
- Electrocardiograph: Electrocardiography monitors both the rhythm and heart rate to provide warning from beforehand in case of any change in the electrical activity.
- Respiratory gas monitors: These monitors show the waveform as per the counted respiratory rate. This helps to determine the oxygen level in the blood.
In addition to the above, the hospital also offers facilities for invasive monitoring like cardiac output or arterial blood pressure. It is essential for the proper handling of critically ill patients and those going through major surgeries. Our operation theatres are fully equipped with infusion pumps that help deliver the patient an accurate rate and amount of drugs needed to perform the surgery. If it fits, we give regional or general anesthesia or even both. Moreover, we use the latest block placement techniques to provide regional anesthesia by either single shot or through catheter techniques.
Administration of Anesthesia
If you are about to undergo surgery, the doctors will first administer anesthesia to reduce pain during the surgical process. The type of anesthesia that the professional will give you will mainly depend on factors like your health condition and the surgery procedure. The type of anesthesia that we provide includes:
- Local Anesthesia: This type of anesthesia is given to the patient to numb only a small portion of the body. The most appropriate example of using local anesthesia is cataract surgery, skin biopsy, or a dental process. Here you are awake during the process.
- General Anesthesia: General anesthesia will make you insensitive to pain or unconscious during the surgery. It is necessary when the surgery is invasive or involves an area of the chest, head, or abdomen. After taking the dose, you become unconscious and feel nothing. You will have no memory of how the procedure was performed.
- Regional Anesthesia: Regional anesthesia makes a larger part of the body insensitive, like the area below your chest or limb. In addition to regional anesthesia, the doctor may give you sedation, or you can be conscious during the surgical process. It is necessary to ease childbirth pain or during C-section, knee surgery, hip or spinal surgery, etc.
- Conscious or intravenous sedation: This is a mild sedative given to you by the doctor to relieve pain along with pain medicine. After taking the dose, you may remain awake, but you will not remember the process afterward.
Various ways of providing Anesthesia
Depending on the type of surgical procedure and the anesthesia the professionals are providing, they can deliver it through three ways:
- Inhaled gas
- Injection, through intravenous method or shots
- Liquid, patch, or spray applied to your eyes or skin
