Anesthesiology is the medical science devoted to relieve the pain of surgical patients and to ensuring their overall care before, during and after the surgery. The development of this specialty, influenced by the insertion of novel anesthetic drugs and a wider and sensitive monitoring throughout the surgical act, brings the possibility of a better security in nowadays surgery.
Our institution has a prominent team of anesthetists who interrogate the patients before the surgery to offer them some information and guarantees about the anesthetic proceeding that will be applied, all that after a detailed interview and physical exam. Once in the postoperative area, the patient will be protected by his anesthetist and after waking up, he will be in conditions to return to his room.
In addition to the anesthetic act for surgeries, the anesthetists perform other medical proceedings like the acute and chronic pain treatment and the sedation of patients who require it during some scientific research or proceedings.
