General anaesthetic

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 05 May 2022

General anaesthesia is a state of controlled unconsciousness. During a general anaesthetic, medications are used to send you to sleep, so you're uninformed of surgery and do not really feel or move pain while it's lugged out. General anaesthesia is essential for some operations where it may be more secure or more comfy for you to be subconscious. Your anaesthetist will check out your case history and will ask whether anyone in your family has had problems with anaesthesia. Your anaesthetist can respond to any questions you have. Right before you have surgery, you'll usually be required to a space where your anaesthetist will offer you the general anaesthetic. It will either be provided as a: fluid that's injected into your blood vessels through a cannula; gas that you breathe in with a mask. They'll make certain you proceed to obtain the anaesthetic which you remain in a controlled state of unfamiliarity.
