FAQ’s During your surgery
What does the anesthesiologist do during the surgery? In addition to giving you the medications needed for the anesthesia, the anesthesiologist monitors your vital signs (heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen content, body temperature and breathing) and adjusts the anesthesia accordingly.
Will I need to receive blood for the surgery? Whether you will need a blood transfusion will depend on your medical condition and the type of surgery you are having.
What kind of anesthesia will I have? The type of anesthesia you receive will be chosen based on the type of surgery, your medical condition and possibly your preferences. There are four types of anesthesia commonly employed – general, regional, monitored anesthesia care (MAC) and local.
