The use of drugs to temporarily numb the body or cause unconsciousness during operations or other medical procedures is known as anesthesia. It seeks to induce a deep state of relaxation and pain reduction so that patients can have surgical procedures done without feeling uncomfortable or distressed.
There are several ways for handling anesthesia, including inhalation (breathing in gases), intravenous injection, or regional procedures (numbing particular body areas). Depending on the procedure, the patient’s health, and the desired level of anesthesia, the precise type and dosage of anesthesia are employed. To ensure the safety and well-being of patients, it is necessary that anesthesia is delivered and monitored by skilled medical professionals, such as anesthesiologists.
