Anaesthesiology: Overview

Surgical procedures require an induced state of unconsciousness, a state of total/partial lack of responsiveness – Anaesthesiology is the branch of medicine that helps achieve, maintain, and reverse such a state such that surgical procedures can be carried out on a patient. Anaesthesia is administered based on the type of surgery that a patient ought to undergo and the extent of pain relief that the patient requires. The methods and manner of reviving the patient post-surgery is an integral part of anaesthesiology.

For any kind of surgical ailment, some measure of pain-relief and a state of total/partial lack of responsiveness is required. The extent of this is decided by the type of surgery, location of the surgery, state of the patient, and the post-surgical revival protocols.
