Overview *

To prevent you from feeling pain during your surgery, your anesthesia specialist may put a tube into your air pipe, or trachea. The tube will be connected to a respirator. This will allow you to receive adequate oxygen as well as anesthetic gases that will help keep you asleep. Your anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist will make you fall asleep until the operation is over. During that time, the anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist will watch over you and make sure your heart, lungs and kidneys are functioning properly.

General anesthesia is extremely safe. There are, however, some possible risks and complications. You can do a lot to prevent them. Knowing about these risks and complications will help you and your doctor detect them early if they happen. Make sure to inform your doctors and anesthesia team of all your medical conditions, medications, allergies and previous anesthetics.
