What To Ask Your Anesthesiologist

How your anesthesiologist in Tulsa, OK, can help you

When you are preparing for surgery, it’s normal to feel a bit nervous. You can feel a little less nervous after talking with an anesthesiologist. The anesthesia you will have during your surgery is one of the most important parts of the surgery. The anesthesiologists at Associated Anesthesiologists Inc. in Tulsa, OK, provide a wide range of anesthesia services to help you when you need surgery.

When you see your anesthesiologist, it’s important to get the facts on anesthesia from an expert. These are just a few of the questions to ask your anesthesiologist:

What Type of Anesthesia Do You Recommend for My Surgery?

There are several anesthesia options, and your anesthesiologist can help you decide on the right anesthesia for you. Anesthesia options include:

General anesthesia, which provides the most profound anesthesia. You will not be conscious or aware of your surroundings and what is going on. General anesthesia involves administration of medications with an IV, combined with inhaled gases through a face mask.

Regional anesthesia, which blocks the nerves in a region of your body where you will have the surgery. Spinal, epidural, and peripheral nerve blocks are examples of regional anesthesia. A sedative medication may also be administered to help you relax during your surgery.

Local anesthesia, which numbs the nerves in a small area of your body. Local anesthesia is typically the choice for minor procedures and may be performed by your surgeon.

What Are the Side Effects of Anesthesia?

It’s important to know what to expect after anesthesia. You may feel slightly dizzy, tired, or unable to focus. You may also experience some nausea with anesthesia. It’s important to bring someone with you who can drive you home after your surgery.

How Long Will It Take To Recover From the Anesthesia?

It’s helpful to know how long you might be in the recovery area or in the hospital. Your anesthesiologist and your surgeon can tell you what to expect so you can plan for your return home.

Remember to discuss your overall health with your anesthesiologist. It’s important for your anesthesiologist to know if you have any medical conditions like asthma, heart problems, breathing issues, high blood pressure, and others.

Also let your anesthesiologist know which medications you are taking and in what dosages. Some medical conditions and medications can affect the way you and your body respond to anesthesia.
