What types of anesthesia are there?
There are 4 types of anesthesia. The type of anesthesia administered to you depends on your general health status, the surgery and the one you choose.
Types of anesthesia
General Anesthesia.- This type of anesthesia serves to make the patient unconscious throughout his surgery and can not feel anything during the procedure.
Regional Anesthesia.- Allows a procedure to be done on a region of the body without being unconscious. Blocks sensations of pain from a large area of the body.
This anesthesia serves to sleep a specific region of the body of large size. It is usually used for arms, legs, spinal and epidural blocks.
Local Anesthesia. Unlike the previous anesthesia, it is used to sleep a specific region but smaller. As it is not very risky, in many cases it does not require the presence of an anesthesiologist.
Anesthesia with monitoring.- This type of anesthesia is administered through medications that will make you feel drowsy. These medications are supplemented with anesthesia injections given by the surgeon. During the surgery, the vital signs are monitored by the anesthesiologist.
