Anaesthesiology, is a branch of medicine that allows safe usage of medical drugs to induce a reversible state of total or partial lack of responsiveness to surgical procedures, so that they can be carried out smoothly, without causing any distress and inconvenience to the patient.
Anaesthesia - Defined
The term Anaesthesia is derived from the Greek words ‘an’ meaning ‘without’ and ‘aesthesis’ meaning ‘sensation’. Thus, anesthesia literally means ‘without sensation’
The Department of Anaesthesiology at SevenHills Hospital uses the most advanced, safe and patient-focused techniques in the delivery of anaesthetic care. Our team of extremely skilled and well-experienced anesthesiologists aims to provide optimum quality patient care not only in the operation theatres but also beyond it by optimizing pre-operative patient status and providing comprehensive patient care during the early post operative period.
If you have to undergo any surgery, your doctor will first administer you a drug called ‘anaesthetic’. Anaesthetics reduce or prevent pain during surgical procedures. There are four main types of anesthetics that are used in the healthcare industry. The type of anaesthesia to be used by your doctor depends on many factors like the procedure of your surgery and your current health.
