An anaesthetic is a combination of drugs that causes loss of sensation.

  • General anaesthetic – A combination of drugs that produce deep sleep. You will not be aware of what is happening and afterwards you will not remember anything that has happened.
  • Epidural or spinal anaesthetic – Involves injecting local anaesthetics and other painkillers near your spinal cord to give pain relief in certain areas of your body.
  • Local anaesthetic – Temporarily stops nerves working so that you do not feel pain. The anaesthetic can be injected just around the area where the operation is going to take place. It is possible to numb the nerves to your arm or leg (a nerve block).

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AN ANAESTHETIC?

  • You may need to have an operation or procedure – So that your surgeon or doctor can perform the operation safely, you need to be in a state where you do not move and your muscles are relaxed. A safe way to achieve this is to give you an anaesthetic.
  • You may be in pain because you have had surgery or have a particular condition – Anaesthetics, usually given by an epidural, can give you pain relief and keep you comfortable.

Frequently Asked Questions

You will speak with an anesthesiologist the morning of your surgery. If your doctor requests an anesthesia consultation at the time of pre-admission testing, we will make special arrangements for that. If you want to speak with an anesthesiologist before the day of your surgery, arrangements can be made to speak with him/her by phone.

The choice of anesthesia is usually a joint decision, made primarily by the anesthesiologist but influenced by the surgeon’s needs and the patient’s preference. Other factors that influence choice include the type and location of the procedure, the projected length of your surgery, and your physical condition.

A CRNA (certified registered nurse anesthetist) is a registered nurse who has completed a Master’s Degree program in nursing and is trained to give anesthesia under the supervision of a physician.

An anesthesiologist assistant is an allied health professional who has completed a two-year Master’s Degree of extensive training in the delivery of anesthesia under the supervision of an anesthesiologist.

“MAC” stands for “Monitored Anesthesia Care.” It is often used for surgery that is short or does not go deep into the body. Under the supervision of an anesthesiologist, a CRNA or anesthesiologist assistant will administer sedatives through an IV to put you into a “twilight” sleep.

Medications can be given before, during, and after to help prevent nausea. These medications make it much more unlikely that you will feel nauseated after anesthesia. Make sure you inform your anesthesiologist if you have had nausea and vomiting with past surgeries.
