DEPARTMENT OF ANAESTHESIOLOGY
As anesthesiologists we are responsible for the safety and well-being of patients before, during and after surgery. This includes placing patients in a state of controlled unconsciousness called “general anesthesia”, the provision of “regional anesthetics” where only a portion of the body is made numb, or administering ‘sedation’ when indicated for the relief of pain or anxiety. These anesthetics provide continuous pain relief and sustain patients’ critical life functions as they are affected throughout surgical, obstetrical or other medical procedures.
The role of the anesthesiologist extends beyond the operating room. The anesthesiologist is responsible for the preoperative assessment of the patient, an evaluation process that carefully considers both the patient’s current state of health and the planned surgical procedure that allows anesthesiologists to make judgments about the safest anesthesia plan for each individual patient. The anesthesiologist is also responsible for the well-being of the patient postoperatively while the patient emerges from the effects of anesthesia. They are often involved in the management of acute postoperative pain, as well as chronic and cancer pain.
Anesthesiologist are also responsible for care of patients in critical care area. They are mainly taking care about ventilator support, nutritional support, and blood pressure support with inotropes, care about posture and intake output balance. They usually taking responsibility of the patient together with primary consultant. They are involved in CPR and advance life-support for the patient
We run dedicated anesthesia care delivery clinics with sub-specialty area experts. The following clinics serve the patients in the respective core areas:
