The main task of anesthesia is to relieve the patient of pain and ensure his safety during the operation.
Modern anesthesia solves various problems: assesses preoperative, operative, anesthetic risks.
During the operation, the number of vital signs of the patient monitored by the anesthesiologist can reach 20-30. A specialist who performs general multicomponent anesthesia must monitor the vital monitor, which reproduces the indicators of the main functions of the body, the monitor of the depth of anesthesia and the monitor of the ventilator, as well as adjust the dosage of the anesthetic, which is calculated and administered by special equipment at specified intervals.
Moreover, the work of an anesthesiologist in our institute does not begin and does not end at the exit from the operating room: he consults the patient before a planned surgical intervention, prescribes the necessary tests, accompanies the patient to the operating room, provides anesthetic support, and then monitors his condition not only in the early postoperative period , but also during the entire stay in the clinic.
Opportunities of the anesthesia department of the VIRTUS clinic
We are more than sufficiently provided with opportunities, forces and means to solve the problems that arise before us. In our clinic, both small surgical interventions with local anesthesia and unique neurosurgical operations lasting more than 8-9 hours are performed (in particular, transnasal removal of a tumor of the Turkish saddle of the middle cranial fossa, which is performed jointly by an ENT surgeon and a neurosurgeon). Aesthetic surgery should be singled out separately, where high-quality anesthesia is no less important. Patients who apply for plastic surgery usually have other goals and expectations than urgent ones: they come for beauty, life changes for the better, and therefore want the anesthesia to be gentle and safe as well.
Every professional who loves his job, understands its nuances and thoroughly knows all the features (and these are our anesthesiologists), is capable, if necessary, of conducting anesthesia with one pain reliever, but this skill is revealed in a completely different way when there is an opportunity to work in a modern operating room with the latest anesthetic equipment — German Draeger stations, which enable anesthesia for patients aged 1 day or older.
It is important to note that three anesthesiologists work in our team, including a pediatric anesthesiologist. All of them have significant experience in various departments of surgery (plastic, thoracic, abdominal, emergency, etc.), as well as in intensive care units. This is a multi-year, multi-level experience that makes the work of an anesthesiologist more complete.
