Anesthesia is a state of insensitivity of the whole body or part of the body to stimuli from the environment and thus to pain.
Anesthesia can be:
• general, with induced sleep of the patient where all sensations are blocked and reduced, including the sensation of pain,
• regional, where all sensations, including the sensation of pain, are blocked in a limited region of surgical work. At the same time, the patient is mostly awake or only slightly sleepy (sedated).
The choice of anesthesia will be made by the anesthesiologist, individually and specifically according to the type of surgical or diagnostic procedure, the patient's concomitant diseases as well as psychological tolerance to pain and the upcoming event. In the conversation with the anesthesiologist, any discomfort, fear or apprehension of the patient is accepted, according to which the way of the final performance of anesthesia will be modeled. Each form of anesthesia simultaneously requires continuous monitoring of vital functions while maintaining internal and external homeostasis within the most optimal, physiological limits.
This is possible with the existence of accompanying modern and state-of-the-art equipment. Anesthesiologists are therefore resuscitators and intensive care and treatment specialists who closely monitor the immediate recovery of the patient from anesthesia after surgery, preventing possible complications and ensuring a painless, safer and faster return to daily life.
