SERVICES

 

Our advanced specialists provide

anaesthetic services for all types

of surgical specialities and procedures

The type of anaesthetic you can expect for your procedure depends on:

 

  • The type of surgery or procedure
  • Significant medical conditions you may have
  • Specific medications you may be taking

 

Your anaesthetist will discuss with you the most appropriate and safest anaesthetic for your procedure.

TYPES OF ANAESTHESIA

On arrival in the operating suite, devices such as an ECG, blood pressure cuff and oximeter (a probe on your finger to measure the oxygen in your blood) will be attached to you in order to monitor the way your body will react to the anaesthetic and surgery.

 

You will then have either General Anaesthesia, Regional Anaesthesia, Intravenous SedationLocal Anaesthesia or a combination of these.

General Anaesthesia

For General Anaesthesia, the anaesthetist will either inject a drug into a vein or give you anaesthetic gas to breathe. This will make you unconscious quickly. Once you are unconscious other drugs are administered to keep you anaesthetised.

 

The doses of these drugs will be continuously adjusted to maintain an appropriate level of anaesthesia. A tube may be inserted through your mouth into your windpipe after you are unconscious.

Regional Anaesthesia

For Regional Anaesthesia, a local anaesthetic is injected near a group of nerves to make an area of your body numb. You may remain awake or receive sedatives to make you drowsy. Some sensations such as pressure may be felt but you will be comfortable. If an unpleasant sensation is felt, your anaesthetist can take additional steps to make you more comfortable. The area being operated on can be screened off so you cannot see what is happening and keep the surgical area sterile.

 

This form of anaesthesia includes epidurals (which are used for the relief of pain in labour, for Caesarean sections and major orthopaedic procedures), spinals (which are used for prostate surgery and orthopaedic surgery on your legs), and injections to anaesthetise the eye during cataract surgery.

Intravenous Sedation

With Intravenous Sedation, sedative drugs are injected into a vein in your arm or hand. The drugs will make you drowsy and relaxed. Most people fall asleep and forget what happened during the procedure but the aim is to put you at ease during the procedure, not to make you unconscious. IV Sedation is commonly used for procedures such as colonoscopy, endoscopy and for minor dental procedures.

Local Anaesthesia

Local Anaesthesia involves the injection of local anaesthetic drugs at the site of the surgery. It may be performed by an anaesthetist or by the surgeon. The injection itself may sting but the operation will be painless as the area will be numb. This may be combined with IV Sedation for some procedures. Normal sensation returns to the area after a few hours.

Regional Blocks/Nerve Blocks

Nerve Blocks involve injecting local anaesthetic drugs close to a nerve, or nerves, to reduce feeling and/or numb the part of your body on which you are having a procedure. The procedure can then be done either with you awake or under anaesthesia. Examples of regional anaesthesia include ‘eye blocks’ for cataracts, arm or leg blocks for limb surgery, spinal anaesthesia for caesarean sections, and epidurals.

ABOUT ANAESTHETISTS

Anaesthetists are specialist doctors who have undergone training for at least 6-10 years in addition to their medical degree. In Australia, this training is supervised and accredited by the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA). During their training, anaesthetists gain extensive knowledge on how the body responds to anaesthesia and surgery, as well as skills in resuscitating an acutely unwell patient.  All specialist anaesthetists attend continuing education seminars and meetings to upgrade their skills and knowledge.

 

Your anaesthetist administers the anaesthetic drugs and stays with you throughout the procedure, adjusting your anaesthetic medication to make you comfortable, and keep you safe while your surgery is performed. Your anaesthetist will only leave your side when you are safely waking and able to care for yourself, alone or with the help of a nurse.

 

In conjunction with recovery room staff, the anaesthetist will make sure you are as comfortable as possible after your operation. The primary goal of the anaesthetist is your safety. You should feel free to discuss anything about your anaesthetic with your anaesthetist, either before or after your procedure.

 

You can find more information regarding anaesthesia on the ANZCA website.
