Anesthesiology is a branch of medicine that deals with pain relief.
The work of an anesthesiologist is extremely important because the efficiency of an operation, in addition to the surgeon, is greatly influenced by the good cooperation between the patient and the anesthesiologist. Before the actual operation, the anesthesiologist informs the patient about the anesthetic procedures, and in this way the patient is safer and there is no place for fear. The patient is obliged to state all the medications he is taking in his therapy, allergies to medications and food, so that the anesthesiologist can safely administer the selected medications when anesthetizing the patient.
For the use of anesthesia, we distinguish inhalation anesthetics and intravenous anesthetics. Thanks to the anesthesia, the patient sleeps (if it is total anesthesia) and does not feel pain, while if it is a local and regional anesthesia, only the part that is being treated is insensitive.
Anesthesiologists participate not only in surgical interventions, but also in performing endoscopic diagnostics, such as gastroscopy, colonoscopy, catheterization and other interventions. Reanimation is one of the most important aspects of an anesthesiologist’s work. In resuscitation, intensive measures are applied to patients whose life is at risk, such as, for example, cardiac arrest. Gea General Hospital with Maternity Hospital has a top team of anesthesiologists who take care of their patients by providing them with the best services.
