How can you reduce your chances of Anesthesia side effects?

The most important part you can do to avoid anesthesia side effects is to ensure that you are being cared for by a Specialist Anesthesiologist.

The Role of an Anesthesiologist

An anesthesiologist is a medical specialist who specializes in anesthesia, which is the use of drugs to cause a lack of sensation in the body, particularly pain. Most surgical procedures would be impossible to perform without anesthetic. Anesthesia relaxes the patient and minimizes anxiety. It also reduces the physical and emotional stress of surgical procedures, allowing the surgeon to conduct intricate and delicate surgeries.

Useful info and health tips

How can you prepare for anesthesia?
  • Know when to stop eating and drinking. Your doctor will tell you when to stop eating and drinking before your surgery. If you take any medicines regularly, ask your doctor or nurse if you should take your medicines on the day before or the day of your surgery.
  • Try to stay calm. Many people are nervous before they have anesthesia and surgery. Mental relaxation methods, such as guided imagery or meditation, can help you relax. And some medicines can help you relax.
  • Plan ahead for going home. Ask a friend or a family member to drive you home. Don’t plan to drive yourself.

If your child is having surgery or a procedure, you can help him or her prepare. Let your child know what to expect. Be honest if he or she might feel pain. Be sure to tell your child that you will be close by.
