Preparing for anesthesia

Sedatives have made surgical operations much easier on both doctors and patients. Anesthesia is administered through gas or drugs and gently induces a state of unconsciousness. If you know you will soon be administered anesthesia, avoiding food for eight (8) hours ahead of time is usually recommended.

When you know you will be given anesthesia, your physician should go over expectations and how you can be prepared. Be sure to alert them of any allergies you have or herbal supplements you may take. During the operation, patients are monitored by an anesthetist who keeps track of breathing, blood pressure, and other factors to ensure the anesthesia is working properly.

At Heart of the Rockies Regional Medical Center, we take every precaution so that your operation goes as smoothly as possible.
