Anesthesia has come a long, long way. Today it’s administered by teams of qualified Anesthesiologists in Austin, Texas, who address not only the patients pain, but also their anxiety before, during and post procedure.
Here are some examples of the three main branches of care:
- General anesthesia – abdominal, chest, brain or heart surgery are examples of this type of surgery.
- Regional anesthesia – Usually arms, legs or lower abdomen. Sedation is administered through an IV for relaxation, then a nerve block is administered to the area being operated on.
- Local / Monitored Anesthesia Care – Commonly known as “Twilight Sleep”, for operations on small area of soft tissue.
Anesthesiologists require additional training and certification, such as Pediatric, Obstetric, Cardiovascular and Thoracic surgeries.
