Anesthesia Practices

Anesthesia methods vary according to the characteristics of the patients and the surgeries in our hospital. Due to this, firstly, each patient is taken to the anesthesia polyclinic -inpatients are in their service- to be evaluated by an anesthesia specialist as surgery prep.

General Anesthesia

Without making any change in vital functions, a temporary loos of consciousness, loss of pain sensation (analgesia), abolition of reflexes and inactivity is provided. General anesthesia time can easily be extended by the duration of the surgery. Following the completion of the surgery, patients are awakened in a few minutes by cutting anesthesic agents.

Regional Anesthesia

The most common method is central blocks (epidural, spinal anesthesia, when both are applied at the same time: spinal-epidural anesthesia) or peripheral blocks. These processes can be applied according to the location and type of surgery. Unlike general anesthesia, the patient does not lose consciousness. The patient is aware of everything, but the pain sensation is removed. Epidural anesthesia is also used in the prevention of birth pains.



Sedation-Analgesia Practices

It is the method of drug administration through vascular access to relieve and calm the patient from fears

for minor surgical procedures, which are to be done with the help of local anesthesia, and painless procedures to help the diagnosis, and test procedures (such as endoscopy, colonoscopy).

Surgery - Post-Anesthesia Monitoring

The patient is taken to the waking room following the end of the surgery and awakening. The patient's vital functions are monitored closely until he/she is transferred to the service room.
