What is Anaesthesia?
You are given an anaesthetic when you have surgery so that you don’t feel pain during the operation. There are different types of anaesthesia and the type you receive will depend on a number of factors, such as the type of operation or procedure you are having and any underlying health problems. Your anaesthetic will be given to you by a doctor who has specialised in anaesthesia - your anaesthetist. Anaesthetic services are provided by your selected anaesthetist at your nominated hospital or surgical centre. No anaesthetic services are provided at the offices of Auckland Anaesthesia Limited. There are 3 main components of your anaesthetic care - preoperative assessment, the anaesthetic for surgery, and post-operative care in recovery and beyond.
You will often be asked to fill in a health questionnaire before coming to hospital, usually given to you by your surgeon. This is reviewed by your anaesthetist prior to meeting you, and is an important part of the assessment process.
Your anaesthetist will meet you some time prior to surgery, commonly on the actual day. You will be asked questions about your pre-existing health state, previous anaesthetic experiences, medications you take and other issues. The anaesthetic plan will be discussed with you and your consent obtained in writing. You will have the chance to ask any questions you might have at this stage.
The anaesthetist may prescribe medications for you to take prior to theatre, such as pain relief medicines, stomach acid medicines, and/or sedatives.
Care During Surgery
Your anaesthetist is present with you throughout your surgery or procedure. Your anaesthetist constantly monitors your vital signs, such as heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, level of oxygenation etc. Medications to control your level of consciousness, post-op pain, and other factors are administered. Intravenous fluids and sometimes blood transfusions are given as needed.
When your operation is over, you will be taken to a special recovery area where your condition will be monitored as you recover from the anaesthetic. Once you are awake, comfortable and stable you are moved to a hospital ward bed if you are staying overnight, or a second stage recovery area from where you go home.
