Understanding Anesthesia

Our anesthesiology professionals partner with your physician and surgeon to make your experience as positive as possible. Following is some useful information about anesthesia – how to prepare and what to expect before, during and after. Your care team can give you a deeper understanding of your individual care – be sure to discuss any questions or concerns you have with them about your specific care.

What to Expect

Preoperative Interview

During a preoperative visit in the days prior or on the day of your procedure, one of our professionals will evaluate your condition, including medical history and medications. Tell them if you or a family member has ever had any issues with anesthesia, or if you have any dental issues. Your anesthetic choices will be discussed.

Day of Surgery

It’s important that you follow all directions regarding medications and fasting before your procedure. Have an adult with you during the procedure to drive you home afterwards.

Types of Anesthesia

Your anesthesia provider and your surgeon will coordinate to determine which type of anesthesia is best for you. Depending on the surgery and your health, you may have several options.

General Anesthesia

Anesthesia provided through a mask, IV, or airway resulting in total loss of consciousness – you will be fully asleep. General Anesthesia is usually for more invasive surgical procedures. You will not be aware of any pain or sensation during your procedure.


MAC (Monitored Anesthesia Care) is provided through an IV. While there’s a small chance you may fade in and out of consciousness, the overwheling majority of patients are entirely unaware of the procedure. MAC is commonly paired with a regional anesthesia to stop sensation from a specific area.

Regional Anesthesia

An injection of an anesthetic near a cluster of nerves, resulting in loss of sensation in an area. Unless other medication is used, regional anesthesia does not result in loss of conscciousness. This is often combined with MAC anesthesia for this purpose. Two common forms of regional anesthesia are Peripheral Nerve Block and Epidural Anesthesia. Peripheral Nerve Block stops sensation through a nerve or group of nerves, usually in the extremities. An Epidural – or Spinal – is an injection in the spine, blocking sensation in a large area of the body such as the abdomen, hips or legs. This is the most common anesthesia for laboring patients.

During Surgery

Your body’s functions are closely monitored by your anesthesia care team in order to appropriately diagnose, regulate, and treat you while an individualized balance of anesthetic medications is administered, optimizing your safety and comfort. Remembering events before and after an anesthetic is a normal – especially with regional and local anesthesia, while awareness under general anesthesia is extremely rare.

After Surgery

Your anesthesiologist is responsible for your care in the recovery room, or post anesthesia care unit (PACU), where they will monitor your condition as the effects of the anesthesia wear off. Some pain after a procedure is normal, and may be treated with medications if needed. Some common side effects include nausea, vomiting, weakness, dizziness, muscle aches, shivering, sore throat, and for regional anesthesia loss of sensation and movement for a period of time.

Anesthesia may remain in your system for up to 24 hours. Don’t do the following for 24 hours: drive a car, operate heavy equipment, drink alcohol, make any important decisions, sign legal documents or smoke.

Your Care Team

Your anesthesia care team is made up of an anesthesiologist, a certified registered nurse anesthetist, or both. Anesthesiologists are physicians who have completed medical school as well as at least 4 years of residency training. Certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) are advanced practice nurses with a college degree and at least a master’s, while many have a doctorate.

Your care team is responsible for your well-being before, during, and after your procedure. In the operating room, your anesthesia provider will manage vital functions and fluid and blood replacement, if needed. They regulate the anesthetic so you are as safe and comfortable as possible.
