Types of Anaesthetics
Before any surgery, doctors will first give you a drug called ‘anaesthetic’ to reduce pain during surgical procedures. There are various types of anaesthesia which are used depending on factors like the procedure of surgery and one’s current health. There are four main types of anesthetics and they are:-
- Local anesthesia: It is used to numb one small area of the body but it keeps you awake and alert during the surgery.
- Conscious or intravenous (IV) sedation: It is used as a mild sedative to calm you and a pain medicine is used to relieve pain. You do not remember the surgery afterwards but you remain awake during procedure.
- Regional anesthesia: It is used to restrict the pain in an area of the body.
- General anesthesia: It works on whole body. You become unconscious and have no memory of the surgery performed
Dighi multispecialty hospital uses good quality of anesthetics which relieve your pain during surgery. The doctors and medical staffs are always available for a patient’s support and care. Our priority is your care and treatment before and after surgery.
