Lifeline hospital Anesthesiology Institute unites all specialists in pain management, general anesthesia, pediatric & congenital heart anesthesia, cardiothoracic anesthesia and critical care, regional practice, outcomes research and education within one fully integrated model of care to improve diagnosis, medical management and quality of life for our patients.
This innovative model of care allows patients to better access the services they need through our six specialized, multidisciplinary departments and more than 15 subspecialized sections. We strive to advance anesthesia through clinical excellence, education, innovation and people.
The term Anaesthesia is derived from the Greek word ‘an’ meaning ‘without’ and ‘aesthesis’ meaning ‘sensation’. Anaesthesiology is a branch of medicine that allows safe usage of medical drugs to induce a reversible state of total or partial lack of responsiveness to surgical procedures, so that they can be carried out smoothly, without causing any distress and inconvenience to the patient.
The Department of Anaesthesiology at Lifeline uses the most advanced, safe and patient focused techniques in the delivery of anaesthetic care. We aim to provide optimum quality of patient care not only in the operation theatres but also beyond it by optimizing preoperative patient status and providing comprehensive patient care during the early post operative period.
If you are having surgery, your doctor will give you a drug called an anesthetic. Anesthetics reduce or prevent pain. There are four main types.
Blocks pain in an area of the body, such an arm or leg. Epidural anesthesia, which is sometimes used during childbirth, is a type of regional anesthesia.
Affects your whole body. You go to sleep and feel nothing. You have no memory of the procedure afterwards. The type of anesthesia your doctor chooses depends on many factors. These include the procedure you are having and your current health.
