Whether you yourself are planning an upcoming surgery or someone who you love is in need of a medical procedure, surgery can be an extremely stressful situation to deal with. Even for people who have had surgery or have worked in the medical field, the shear thought of having to have surgery can evoke a lot of anxiety and stress. Most people understand the importance of a reputable and experienced surgeon but what not a lot of people think about is the anesthesiologist that will be administering anesthesia and pain medication prior to, during and after the surgery. The quality of care that an anesthesiologist provides is just as important and can make a big difference in the overall experience and success of a procedure. The professionals at Capitol Anesthesiology Association@capanesth are experienced with patients of all ages and genders. Special assessments are considered for each case in order to provide safe and effective anesthesia.
There are a few different types of anesthesia that is used by Capitol Anesthesiology and this includes regional anesthesia, general anesthesia and local anesthesia. Each serve their own purpose and some are safer than others; considering the patient. Regional anesthetic allows for less monitoring overall during the procedure but it allows the surgeons to perform their duties on a motionless patient. General anesthesia is commonly used for more serious procedures as it completely keeps a person immobile and unaware of what is going on. Local anesthesia is used for minor procedures where pain relief is needed in one specific area of the body.
