  • What are the types of anaesthesia?  

There are three main types of anaesthesia: general anaesthesia, regional anaesthesia, and local anaesthesia.  

General anaesthesia is used for procedures that require the patient to be unconscious, while regional anaesthesia numbs only a specific part of the body. Local anaesthesia is used for minor procedures, and it numbs only a small area of the body.  

  • How is anaesthesia administered?  

Anaesthesia can be administered through injection, inhalation, or a combination of both. The method of administration depends on the type of anaesthesia and the patient's medical condition.  

What are the four stages of administering anaesthesia?  

The four stages of administering anaesthesia are induction, maintenance, emergence, and recovery. Induction is the process of putting the patient to sleep, while maintenance involves keeping the patient asleep during the procedure. Emergence is the process of waking the patient up, and recovery involves monitoring the patient as they come out of anaesthesia.  

  • What are the side effects of general anaesthesia?  

General anaesthesia is commonly safe, but there are some potential side effects, including nausea and vomiting, a sore throat, confusion, and muscle aches. In rare cases, more serious side effects, such as allergic reactions or damage to the vocal cords, may occur.  

  • What can I expect after my surgery under anaesthesia?  

After surgery, you will be monitored in a recovery room until you are awake and your vital signs are stable. Depending on the type of surgery and anaesthesia used, you may experience some pain, nausea, or dizziness. Your doctor will provide you with instructions on how to manage these symptoms and when it is safe to resume normal activities.
