The objective of anaesthesia is not only the elimination of pain but also protection against the stress reaction that the body automatically undergoes before and during the operation.
In the operating theatre, vital functions such as heart rate, circulation, respiration etc. are continuously monitored by the anaesthetist. If necessary, he can intervene and influence (e.g. deepen) the anaesthesia with drugs.
Anaesthesiology is today one of the most sophisticated and innovative specialities in medicine. State-of-the-art equipment for treatment and monitoring as well as safe medications are available.
Before every operation, the anaesthesia team will talk to you; you can ask questions, the type of anaesthesia is determined and explained in detail, and you are informed about the measures of pain relief after the operation.
The information also serves to reduce fear and address any problems that may exist.
