At Apollo Hospitals, Ahmedabad, we provide a comprehensive range of clinical services, including peri-operative anaesthesia services including neuro-anaesthesia and organ transplant anaesthesia.
The Department of Anaesthesiology of the hospital has achieved excellence for general and regional anaesthesia. The foundation of this department is the clinical skill of our anaesthesiologists who have received training and accomplishments from the best institutes around the world.
We have a dedicated team of many senior anaesthetists who along with their associates & junior staff provide round the clock service. The anaesthetists are helped by the state of the art anaesthetic equipment. Services provided also include preoperative checkups and post operative pain management.
Types of anaesthesia provided depend on the patient’s medical status and type of procedure –
General Anaesthesia – Patient is not conscious
Regional anaesthesia – Local anaesthetic is injected by anaesthesiologist to provide numbness in certain part of body. This could be used for pain control during/after procedure.
MAC (Monitored Anaesthesia Care) – Monitoring care of vitals during a procedure, may involve sedation if necessary.
The anaesthesiologist will meet the patient prior to the surgery and discuss the medical history, lab results and anaesthesia plan. In the O.T a member of the anaesthesia care will be with the patient throughout the procedure. After the procedure patient will be moved to the recovery room and a nurse will monitor the patient and provide medication to minimize pain, nausea and vomiting as needed. Then the patient will be discharged from Recovery room on advice by anaesthetist when he is stable and comfortable.
