Role of an Anesthesiologist

Anesthesiologists are doctors who specialise in giving anaesthesia to patients during surgical procedures. They are also involved in managing critical care units, dealing with crises, and providing pain management recommendations. During cardiovascular and neurological surgery,anaesthesiologist specialised in the respective field is required.

Cardiac Anesthesiologist: Cardiovascular anesthesia is given during major cardiovascular surgery like open-heart bypass surgery, replacement surgery, embolectomy surgery, etc. Cardiac patients often are at very high risk, with pulmonary cardiac and systolic comorbidities and the surgical procedures may produce significant physiologic challenges to the anesthesiologist.

Cardiac surgeries and procedures are often more complex than general surgery due to deterioration of the heart caused by heart disease. The cardiac anesthesiologists at Park Hospital are highly experienced to deal with the changes in heart function and blood pressure that occur as a result of heart disease and heart complications. Our cardiac anesthe siologists maintain heart function throughout surgery using specific monitoring techniques and a choice of anaesthetic medications to keep you safe.

Neurological Anaesthesia: Neurosurgical anaesthesia, often known as neuro-anesthesia, is a specialty of anaesthesiology concerned with the anaesthesia of patients undergoing brain or spinal cord surgery. Aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, intracranial tumours, head traumas, stereotactic operations, neuroradiological procedures, paediatric neurosurgery, and spine surgery are just a few of the ailments that neurosurgical anaesthesiologists treat. Neurosurgical methods necessitate that the anesthaesiologist is well-versed in neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and sophisticated monitoring techniques such as neuromonitoring of the brain and spinal cord. The goals of neuro-anaesthesia are to provide good operative conditions, such as a relaxed brain, to maintain optimum cerebral perfusion and oxygenation throughout surgery, to assess and preserve neurological function, to minimise interference with intraoperative neuromonitoring, and to recover quickly and with high quality.

It is a safe procedure however, the expert anesthesiologists at Park Hospital are well trained to handle any complications during surgical procedures. The reactions of general anaesthesia could be:

  • Sore throat
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Lactation to the lips, tongue, gums, and throat
  • Damage to teeth
  • Awareness under anaesthesia
  • Anaphylaxis or allergic reactions
  • Malignant Hypothermia.
