Anesthesia Technology

Anesthesia Technology


Anesthesia technology refers to the practice of administering medications either by injection or by inhalation (breath in) that blocks the feeling of pain and other sensations, or that produces a deep state of unconsciousness that eliminates all sensations, which allows medical and surgical procedures to be undertaken without causing undue distress or discomfort. The word Anesthesia is coined from two Greek words: “an” meaning “without” and “aesthesis” meaning “sensation”. There are various types of anesthesia. Throughout their lives, most people will undergo anesthesia either during the birth of their baby or for a surgical procedure, which could range from relatively short, simple surgery on a day-stay basis through to major surgery requiring complex, rapid decisions to keep them safe. Many of today’s operations are made possible as a result of developments in anesthesia and training of specialists anesthetists.
