Anesthesia means the loss of sensation in a part or the entire body. It can be achieved in the patients who are undergoing a surgery, as a result of administration of medications called anesthetics by a team of specialist doctors known as the anesthesiologists. The experienced team of nurses will assist anesthesiologist in the intensive care unit during your procedure but the judgments and decisions are taken by the anesthesiologist himself/herself only.

Why is it done?

An invasive surgical procedure like kidney surgery is intensely painful. Thus, the patients are numbed by administering anesthetics prior to performing such surgeries to prevent discomfort and pain. This enables a surgeon to accomplish a wide range of medical procedures.

There are mainly three types of anesthesia procedures. The choice of anesthesia procedure depends on various factors including the type of surgical procedure you are undergoing; time of surgery your current and past health status, medications, past experiences, allergies or doctor’s preference.

Local Anesthesia:
Local anesthesia is a procedure in which your anesthesiologist applies or injects the anesthetic at the site of surgical area to numb the area locally.

Regional Anesthesia:
In regional anesthesia, a larger region of the body is numbed by injecting the anesthetic.

There are two common variants of the procedure:

1. Epidural and Spinal Anesthesia:

In this type of regional anesthesia, the anesthetic is injected in the area near the spinal cord so that the entire connected region could be numbed. For instance, the procedure could be used when numbing of the lower part of the body is required.

2. Peripheral Nerve Block:

In this type of anesthesia procedure, the drug is injected around a group of nerves thereby numbing a particular region of the body. For example, when numbing the shoulder, arm and hand is required.

General Anesthesia: General anesthesia is the most common type of anesthesia procedure which is opted when a patient is required to be unconscious or completely asleep throughout the surgical process. The procedure can also opt when other variants do not work. In this method, the drug can be administered either intravenously or by inhalation of the drug in the gaseous form. This affects the brain and the patient becomes completely unconscious.
