Anaesthesiology, or anesthesiology, 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 well-skilled and well-experienced anesthesiologists aims to provide optimum quality of patient care not only in the operation theatres but also beyond it, by optimizing preoperative patient status and providing comprehensive patient care during the early post operative period.
If you have to undergo a surgery, your doctor will give you a drug called ‘anaesthetic’. Anaesthetics reduce or prevent pain during the surgery process. There are four main types of anesthetics that are used in the healthcare industry. The type of anaesthesia which your doctor chooses to use depends on many factors like the procedure of your surgery and your current health.
