Anesthesiology at SECURE Hospital

Secure Hospitals’ Department of Anesthesiology assists patients with pre-operative care and post-operative pain control for minimally invasive and complex open surgeries. It provides general anesthesia, local anesthetic, pain medication, intensive care medicine, and critical emergency medicine in coordination with other departments.

Anesthesiologists at Secure Hospitals are among the most well-respected medical practitioners in the hospital. During surgeries, they control the patient’s breathing and airway, medication and fluid balance, and all critical processes, which means they are in charge of the patient’s life. Their broad experience on the surgical site makes the operation simple for the patient and easy for the doctors.

Treatment & Procedures :

Local Anesthesia :
This form of anesthetic can be applied as a spray, injection, or ointment. Only the operative region is numbered. It’s mainly utilized for outpatient surgeries like hand and foot surgery.

Regional Anesthesia :
This type of anesthetic is used to numb a specific region of the body, such as epidural, spinal, or nerve block anesthesia.

The different types of Anesthesia are :

1. General Anesthesia :
The patient is kept unconscious and pain-free during the surgery by giving anaesthetics continuously. The effects of the drugs are reversed after the procedure, and they are awake.

2. Regional Anesthesia :
Epidural anaesthesia occurs when local anaesthetics are administered around the sheath that surrounds the spinal cord. The patient is awake, but a local anaesthetic injection is used to numb the area to be operated on temporarily. It’s called spinal anaesthesia when the injection is made into the fluid around the spinal cord. The injection is known as a plexus block if it is done around specific nerve groups.

3. Monitored Anesthesia Care :
Some surgeries can be performed using a local anesthetic, which is given immediately around the surgical site. This is appropriate for very modest procedures. However, suppose there is a concern that the patient may get nervous or that the surgery will take longer to complete. In that case, anaesthetists will be called to standby to provide sedation, pain medication, or anaesthesia as necessary, including regional anaesthesia.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ans: Anaesthesia is a combination of medications that induces unconsciousness prior to surgery or other medical procedures. Under anaesthesia, no pain or distress is felt. It is administered and monitored by an anesthesiologist, a physician who specialises in anaesthesia.
Ans: The main types of anesthesia include:
  • General anesthesia (complete unconsciousness)
  • Regional anesthesia (numbing a specific area)
  • Local anesthesia (numbing a small, localized area)
Ans: Anesthesia is typically administered by an anesthesiologist, a medical doctor with specialized training in anesthesia, or a nurse anesthetist, under the supervision of a physician.
Ans: General anesthesia is usually delivered through an intravenous (IV) line and inhaled gases. It renders the patient unconscious and unaware during surgery.
Ans: Regional anesthesia blocks pain in a specific region of the body, allowing surgery or procedures to be performed without affecting consciousness. Common types include epidurals and nerve blocks.
Ans: Anesthesia is generally safe when administered by trained professionals. The anesthesia team monitors vital signs throughout the procedure to ensure safety.
Ans: The choice of anesthesia depends on factors such as the type of surgery, the patient’s medical history, and the patient’s preferences.
Ans: While rare, anesthesia carries some risks, including allergic reactions, breathing problems, and adverse reactions to medications. Your anesthesia team will discuss these risks with you before the procedure.
Ans: No, one of the goals of general anesthesia is to induce complete unconsciousness, so you should not remember anything during the procedure.
Ans: Recovery from anesthesia varies depending on the type used and the individual. Typically, patients are closely monitored in a recovery area until they are fully awake and their vital signs are stable.
