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.
