What is General Anesthesia?

Last week we posted a trivia question on Facebook relating to Anesthesia and received great feedback!

General anesthesia is a type of sedation that uses several medications to render the patient unconscious and unable to move. The medications are given both through an IV and mixed with oxygen and inhaled. This combination of medications insures that the patient is unaware of any pain caused by surgery and also prevents the patient from moving during surgery, potentially causing a surgical error. The patient is unable to move after the medications are given so a breathing tube is placed into the patient’s airway and connected to a machine that helps the patient breathe and maintain a patent airway.

A Board Certified Anesthesiologist provides anesthesia for all of our cosmetic surgery procedures at our Orlando practice. Stay tuned for our upcoming Press Release on Thursday on Facts and Myths on Anesthesia.
