The first general anaesthesia was given a hundred and fifty years ago. This is one of the youngest specialities of medicine now diversified in to newer branches like Intensive Care, pain relief, and emergency medical management.

An Anaesthesiologist (Anaesthetist) is a medical doctor who is a postgraduate in this field. They are assisted by Associate Consultants, Registrars, Operating Department Assistants (technicians), and recovery room nurses. Well-trained staff and availability of latest technology makes this as one of the safest places to get an anaesthesia.

Safety and Technology

Anaesthetic machines giving adequate oxygen at all times.

Anaesthetic gas monitors

One of these is available in every theatre unmatched even in the developed world. These monitors let us use extremely low fresh gas flows lesser than 500mls resulting in extreme economy, and negligible theatre pollution. They monitor the following continuously:-

  • Oxygen
  • Carbon Dioxide
  • Nitrous Oxide
  • Anaesthetics gases
  • ECG
  • Blood Pressure
  • Oxygen Saturation
  • Invasive Pressures such as arterial pulmonary artery central venous
  • Temperature
  • Airway pressures and gas volumes
  • Neuromuscular Function Monitoring

Cardiac monitoring

  • Thermodilution Cardiac Output
  • Continuous Cardiac Output
  • Continuous Mixed Venous Saturation

Equipment making most complicated surgery safe

  • Bair huggers & Disposable blankets
  • Blood warmers
  • Syringe pumps, Infusion pumps
  • Blood gas and Electrolyte machine
  • Incubating bronchoscope

Newer drugs freely available

  • Fentanyl
  • Sevoflurane
  • Propofol
  • Newer muscle relaxants

Fully equipped post operative recovery rooms with monitoring equipment as in the operating rooms
