Anaesthetic (general anaesthetic)

The most common anaesthetic procedures

When giving an anaesthetic, the doctor administers medication intravenously to the patient, which quickly puts him or her to sleep and relaxes the muscles.

To prepare the organism for the impending anaesthetic, the patient receives some oxygen via a breathing mask. With so-called endotracheal anaesthetic, the anaesthetist places a tube in the trachea of the patient, via which respiration takes place during the anaesthetic and which at the same time prevents the reflux of gastric juice into the lung.

In the course of this, the anaesthetist maintains the anaesthetic as long as possible with easily controlled medication. This is possible with intravenous medication or with "narcotic gases". Narcotic gases are administered together with oxygen via the tube.

Pain management after the operation

We would like people to recuperate as quickly as possible after the operation. For this reason, we often use pain catheters for post-operative care.
