Types of Anaesthetics
If you are required to undergo any surgery, your surgeon will first inject you with a drug called ‘Anaesthetic’. Anaesthetics help you prevent pain during any of the surgical procedures. The healthcare industry uses the four main types of anesthetics as follows:
- Local anesthesia
Local anesthesia works by desensitizing a small area of the body that needs to be operated. You will be awake and alert all the time during the operation.
- Intravenous or Conscious (IV) sedation
It is used as a mild sedative that soothes you and relieves pain. You will be awake during the procedure, but may not remember it afterwards.
- Regional anesthesia
Regional anesthesia is used to block pain in a specific area of the body such an arm or a leg. Epidural anesthesia used during the childbirth procedure, is also a type of Regional anesthesia.
- General anesthesia
General anesthesia acts on the whole body making you fall asleep in seconds and feel nothing throughout the procedure. You won’t have any memory of the performed procedure.
