Anesthesiologist Questions Anesthesia

What anesthesia is easier to recover from?

Is local, twilight or general anesthesia the easiest to re-cooperate from?

Local
Local. No neurologic side effects
Local essentially means no sedation. It’s a spectrum between nothing and General. The deeper the anesthesia, the more difficult the recovery.
One can recuperate from local anesthesia and twilight sleep anesthesia faster than from general anesthesia; however, modern methods of general anesthesia also lead to fast recovery times.
