Various Kinds of Anesthesia Services


Dental Treatment

REGARDLESS OF the severity of physical pain it may render a patient, every operation procedure requires an anesthesia or two. As each person’s pain management differs from one to the other, having something handy and ready would be helpful to both the medical experts and the first-time patient who barely knows anything he is going to experience.

A young patient may have a high tolerance for body pains while another one may not; and at the same time, an older patient may be overly sensitive to physical pain while another may have mastered the numbness in times of severe pain. Hence, it all depends on the person’s ability to cope with pain.

This is why regardless of age and body built, anesthesia services surely come in very handy and patient-friendly as these help ease not only the pains felt during the operation, but even the patient’s anxiety prior to the process. There are various kinds of anesthesia services available and it is imperative to know them just in case you or a family member should undergo an operation.

  1. Regional Anesthesia

This kind of anesthesia focuses on a particular area of the body such as but not limited to the epidural, nerve block anesthesia and spinal. You are awake throughout the operation but could not feel any pain in the area where the surgeons are working on.

       2. General Anesthesia

This is the most common kind of anesthesia service used. Patients are given certain medications that would render them unconscious all throughout the operation process. When administered either via IV or gases like a tubed oxygen or a breathing masks, the patient can not feel anything at all as they are in a state of being “asleep.”

        3. General and Epidural Anesthesia Combination

This anesthesia combination service allows you to sleep throughout the operation process and allows pain control even after the operation.

         4. Anesthesia Care on Monitor with Conscious Sedation

Medications are injected with the use of an IV catheter. This helps a patient relax and at the same time, make any pain bearable. When administered, a patient will feel very drowsy during the process but can still respond to questions asked.
