Types of Anesthesia
Quite a number of drugs are used before, during and after the medical procedure to render a pain-free invasive surgical experience to the patients. Following are the various types of Anesthesia:
Local Anesthesia – It involves injecting a local anesthetic drug in the tissue of the intended area. The drug may be given alone or in combination depending upon the type and time-span of the surgery to be performed. This type of Anesthesia is appropriate for minor invasive procedures like skin lesion or toenail repair surgery.
Regional Anesthesia – It involves injecting local anesthesia around the nerve bundles of various regions of the body like forearm, hands, abdomen, thighs or ankle. The administration of Regional Anesthesia is administered with the help of devices like ultrasound or nerve stimulator. In this procedure, the patient might experience high-grade numbness and tingling in the intended portion of the body. Regional Anesthesia is further categorized into Spinal and Epidural.
Sedation – This approach mitigates the consciousness level of the patient allowing him/her to respond to only basic stimuli like touch, verbal commands etc. Some of the major used medications include– benzodiazepines, opioids causing sedation and pain-relief to the patient.
General Anesthesia – This is one of the most critical forms of anesthesia where in the patient stops responding to the sensations and even experience changes in breathing and blood circulation. During this procedure, our experts monitor the patients at every step and manage their airway, blood circulation and general stimuli responses.
