  • Is general anesthesia required for a tonsillectomy?

    Tonsillectomy surgery requires general anesthesia. The surgeon and the anesthesiologist must share the airway during the procedure. For the airway to be secured an endotracheal tube must be used. It’s difficult to have an endotracheal tube to secure the airway in a child without using general anesthesia. READ MORE

  • How long before my surgery should I stop taking blood thinners?

    Without knowing the name of the blood thinner you are taking, it will be difficult to answer this question. You can go on the website of the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and write the name of your blood thinner in the search section. The recommendation from ASRA can then be read and followed.

  • Can anesthesia be administered to a patient with diabetes?

    The anesthesia can be safe for him if it's done under local anesthesia. His physician should be working to reduce his blood glucose and then HBA1C. READ MORE

  • What is procedural anesthesia?

    Procedural anesthesia is a technique of administering sedatives or dissociative agents with or without analgesics to induce a state that allows the patient to tolerate unpleasant procedures while maintaining cardiorespiratory function. It was formerly called conscious sedation. There are 3 types of procedural anesthesia, (minimal sedation, moderate sedation and deep sedation) depending on the level or responsiveness to verbal and tactile stimuli and whether airway intervention may be required or not. In minimal sedation there is usually normal response to verbal stimulus and the airway usually would not require intervention. In deep sedation, there is usually purposeful response to repeated or painful stimuli. Moderate sedation would respond purposefully to verbal or tactile sedation, but airway intervention may be needed. READ MORE
