All patients are evaluated extensively prior to the administration of anesthesia, both before admission and also in the rooms and wards. The Anaesthesia plan and the risks involved are explained to the patient.
During the Administration of Anaesthesia the care is maintained:
The anesthesia technique is planned for each patient depending on the surgical procedure, the condition of the patient, and the availability of drugs.
For general anesthesia, modern anesthetic agents with minimal side effects are used.
Regional anesthetic techniques performed include spinal, epidural, and caudal anesthesia, as well as nerve blocks. Monitored anesthesia care is used for patients undergoing surgery under local Anaesthesia. Each patient is monitored continuously during the procedure.
Post Anaesthesia care:
All patients who undergo surgery under Anaesthesia are observed in a modern well equipped postoperative recovery care unit by specially trained nursing staff under the guidance of the Anaesthesiologists. Care is taken to provide adequate post-operative pain relief to every patient. Those who need more intense monitoring for a longer period of time are shifted to the critical care unit for further management.
Post-operative pain management:
Acute Pain Service is provided for acute and immediate post-operative pain management of admitted patients.
