Anesthesia: Comfort, Control, Precision!

What is Anesthesia?
  • Local anesthesia: This method involves numbing the surgical area around the eye.
  • Regional anesthesia: A specific region around the eye can be numbed by administering an injection either near the eye or in the surrounding area. You can choose to stay awake or receive medication for relaxation.
  • General anesthesia: This approach renders you unconscious using medications. After the surgery, you will regain consciousness shortly, except in certain circumstances.

Anesthesia is a medical technique used to temporarily block the sensations of pain during surgical or medical procedures. It is used to help patients remain comfortable and relaxed while medical procedures are being performed. 

Anesthesia is administered by a specialized healthcare professional called an anesthesiologist. An anesthesiologist is a medical doctor who has completed additional training in the field of anesthesia. 

There are three main types of anesthesia: general anesthesia, regional anesthesia, and topical anesthesia. General anesthesia is used for procedures that require the patient to be completely unconscious, while regional anesthesia is used to numb the eye to be operated. Topical anesthesia is used to numb only the surface of the eye. 

Anesthesia is generally very safe, but as with any medical procedure, there are some risks involved. These risks can include breathing difficulties, allergic reactions etc . Your anesthesiologist will discuss these risks with you before your procedure. 

Your anesthesiologist will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for your anesthesia. These may include avoiding food and drink for a certain period of time before the procedure, stopping certain medications, and informing your anesthesiologist of any allergies or medical conditions. 

During anesthesia, the anesthesiologist will monitor your vital signs, including your heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation levels. They will also administer the anesthesia and make sure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. 

After your procedure, you will be closely monitored to ensure that you are recovering well from the anesthesia. You may feel groggy and have discomfort in the eye for a period of time after the procedure, and it is important to follow all post-operative instructions provided by your healthcare team. 

An anesthesiologist is a specialized healthcare professional who plays a crucial role in medical procedures. Their primary responsibility is to administer anesthesia to patients and ensure their comfort and safety throughout the procedure with monitored anesthesia care (MAC). They make necessary arrangements and ensure the anesthesia is working effectively and safely. 

Before receiving anesthesia, you will have a pre-anesthesia assessment with the anesthesiologist. During this assessment, you will be asked about your medical history, current medications, and any allergies you may have. It is important to provide accurate and complete information to ensure your safety. The anesthesiologist will explain the type of anesthesia planned for your procedure and any necessary preparations you need to follow, such as fasting from food and drink for a certain period of time. 

Anesthesia is generally considered safe, thanks to advancements in medical technology and the expertise of anesthesiologists. However, like any medical procedure, there are risks involved. These risks can vary depending on factors such as your overall health, the type of procedure, and the specific anesthesia used. The anesthesiologist will evaluate your individual case and discuss the potential risks and complications with you before the procedure. They will take every precaution to minimize risks and ensure your safety. 

After receiving anesthesia, you may experience some common side effects as you recover from the medication. These can include drowsiness, pain, nausea, and mild sore throat if a breathing tube was used during the procedure. These effects are typically temporary and resolve on their own as the anesthesia wears off. Your healthcare team will closely monitor you and provide appropriate care to manage any discomfort or side effects. 

It is essential to communicate openly and honestly with your anesthesiologist before the procedure. Inform them about any medical conditions you have, such as heart problems, lung issues, or allergies. It is particularly important to mention any previous experiences or complications with anesthesia. Additionally, disclose all the medications you are currently taking, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, addictive habits and herbal supplements. This information will help the anesthesiologist determine the most suitable anesthesia plan for you and minimize potential risks. 

In most cases, you will be instructed to refrain from eating or drinking for a certain period of time before the procedure. This is because the presence of food or liquid in your stomach can increase the risk of aspiration, which is inhaling stomach contents into the lungs. Aspiration can be dangerous during anesthesia. Your anesthesiologist will provide specific guidelines regarding fasting, including the duration of the fasting period, based on the type of procedure you are undergoing. It is crucial to follow these instructions carefully to ensure your safety. 

The primary purpose of anesthesia is to block pain and keep you comfortable during the procedure. With general anesthesia, you will be completely unconscious and will not feel any pain. Regional anesthesia, such as  peribulbar block numbs the eye to be operated, preventing pain in that area. You may feel some pressure or mild discomfort, but no pain. The anesthesiologist will customize the anesthesia plan according to your needs to ensure you are pain-free throughout the procedure. 

The duration of anesthesia’s effects varies depending on the type of anesthesia used and your body’s response to it. General anesthesia typically lasts for the duration of the procedure and wears off gradually.
