It is normal to feel nervous before a procedure. Especially the aspect of anesthetic is alien to most and could be a frightening thought.
As a healthy person, the chances are very small that anything will go wrong during an anesthetic, and this is why we collect your health data before the day of the surgery. It is important that all information is correct.
You receive the anesthetic intravenously through a cannula on your hand. You will fall asleep shortly and be closely monitored by an anesthetic doctor throughout your procedure. He or she will make sure your blood pressure, oxygen level, and pulse is good, as well as monitoring the medicine injection. This is to ensure that you will have a nice and deep sleep during your procedure and that the right mix of medicine is present in your body when you wake up.
After the procedure, you will be moved to our recovery department. Here you will be placed in a comfortable bed with clean duvets and pillows. Depending on your surgery, you will be staying here from 1 hour to 4-5 hours.
You will have a nurse with you at all times and he or she will give you something to eat and drink.
We are able to offer an overnight stay for the patients that wish so at an extra cost.
