    What is Anesthesiology and what they do?

    Anesthesiology is department of medicine, where there are experts who can wisely inject the anesthesia drug to the patients. Because of this process patients are carried out of the surgeries without any distress or inconvenience. Department of Anesthesia is very important for any small or critical surgery.

    Determine if it is safe to proceed with the anesthetic and surgery or procedure.
    Devise an anesthetic plan with the patient. This is typically general anesthesia, sedation anesthesia, or regional anesthesia such as a spinal, epidural, or regional nerve block (usually accompanied by intravenous sedation).
    Ensure unconsciousness with general anesthesia, or the appropriate level of sedation with sedation anesthesia.
    Monitor and maintain normal vital signs, including respirations (breaths), pulse, blood pressure, and temperature.
    Monitor and maintain normal levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide gas in the lungs.
    Identify and treat any problem or emergency that may occur before, during, and after the procedure, such as an unexpected or allergic reaction to a medication, bleeding, or an unexpected change.

    Post Anesthesia Care:

    We take good care of all patients who undergo surgery under Anesthesia. They are kept under observation in a modern well equipped postoperative recovery care unit by specially trained nursing staff under the guidance of the Anesthesiologists to assist the patients in any difficulty.

    These nursing staff at the Care unit will look after the patients and ensure that the patient is taken to provide adequate post-operative pain relief. Sometimes there comes a need for more intense monitoring for a longer period of time is shifted to the critical care unit for further management.

    We have an extremely skilled and well experienced team of anesthesiologists who aim at optimum quality patient care not just during the surgery but also post surgery period. Anesthestists are the fist persons who will attend the patients to prepare them for the surgery and ensure they will be comfortable till the end of the surgery.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    You will meet your anesthesiologist the day of the operation before surgery. If you have any questions or concerns related to your anesthesia, you are welcome to contact the Department to arrange for a pre-anesthetic consultation. We always have an anesthesiologist on call to answer your pressing questions.

    If you have any questions about your operation, you should contact us.

    You will be given specific instructions about eating and drinking by the nurse who contacts you the day before your surgery. You should refrain from eating at least eight hours before your scheduled procedure to reduce side effects related to an aspiration. An aspiration is when stomach contents are expelled into the lungs and can cause significant damage. You can protect yourself from an aspiration by carefully following preoperative instructions regarding food and drink.

    You should discuss your medications with your physician at your preoperative medical clearance appointment or with your surgeon before surgery. All patients scheduled for ambulatory surgery will be contacted by an  nurse on the afternoon or evening before surgery – you should ask about your medications then. If your medication questions are not answered by the day of surgery, you should bring your medications with you.

    If you know that you have sleep apnea, please alert your surgeon, anesthesiologist, and the hospital staff before surgery. If you have special home equipment for sleep apnea, such as nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) mask, please bring it with you to the hospital on the day of surgery.

    If you have sleep apnea, as a precautionary measure, you may be admitted overnight to be observed by one of our Critical Care Team to ensure that the medications prescribed to control pain after surgery do not interfere with your breathing.
