The Anaesthesia department at Aspetar also aids patients with perioperative care and acute pain management throughout their hospital stay. Our department works cohesively as a well-integrated, highly efficient team at all times.
Administration of anaesthesia before, during, and after surgery is done using the most up to date safety profile. We use Total Intravenous Anaesthesia or Target Controlled Infusions, with cerebral monitoring as standard for additional safety. Our team remains with each patient throughout their procedure, closely monitoring vital organ function, nociception, and overall global care. Staff also provide acute pain management services, specialising in regional nerve blocks – performed for many operations to ensure patient comfort after the procedure. All regional nerve blocks are performed with precise, direct visualisation, with ultrasound guidance to ensure the optimal effect with the highest safety profile.
Aspetar operating theatres use the most modern technology, enabling us to deliver the highest quality anaesthesia outcomes. We use leading-edge equipment for imaging, monitoring, and anaesthesia delivery care, including ventilation and continuous cerebral monitoring during surgery. In the rare event of something unexpected occurring, we are all trained, certified, and experienced in managing medical emergencies or concerns with maximal efficiency and minimal fuss.
Patients receive individualised, personalised care tailored to their individual situation, and the anaesthesia team works with each patient to choose a treatment plan that best fits their health needs.
