Anaesthesiology

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

Features:
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

Anaesthetic gas monitors

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

Latest disposables

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