Anaesthesia techniques for surgical procedures

Anaesthesia techniques aim to induce temporary unconsciousness and pain relief during surgical procedures. General anaesthesia is the most common technique, involving a combination of intravenous drugs and inhaled gases to render the patient unconscious. Monitored Anaesthesia Care (MAC) involves administering sedatives and pain medications to keep the patient relaxed and comfortable during a procedure. Balanced anaesthesia combines different medications to achieve optimal pain control, muscle relaxation, and sedation. Pre-operative assessment is crucial to evaluate the patient's overall health, allergies, and any potential risks associated with anaesthesia. Anaesthesiologists carefully monitor the patient's vital signs, such as heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen levels throughout the procedure. Inhalation agents like sevoflurane and desflurane are commonly used during general anaesthesia to maintain unconsciousness.
