At METAS Adventist Hospitals, we provide a comprehensive range of clinical services, including perioperative anesthesia services, critical care medicine, and pain medicine. Our patients receive advanced medical care provided by highly trained and skilled clinicians. Our philosophy has always been to work with a multidisciplinary team approach.
The Department of Anesthesiology is the premier department in the country for the practice of general and regional anesthesia. The foundation of this department is the clinical skill of our anesthesiologists who have received training and accomplishments from the best institutes around the world.
We have a dedicated team of more than fifteen senior anesthetists who along with their associates & junior staff provide round the clock service. The anesthetists are helped by the state of the art anesthetic equipment. Services provided also include preoperative checkups and post-operative pain management team and a critical care team.
The hospital has an organized acute pain relief service using:
Types of anesthesia provided depend on the patient’s medical status and type of procedure –
General Anesthesia – Patient is not consciousRegional Anesthesia – Local anesthetic is injected by anesthesiologist to provide numbness in certain part of body. This could be used for pain control during/after procedure.
MAC (Monitored Anesthesia Care) – Monitoring care of vitals during a procedure, may involve sedation if necessary.
The anesthesiologist will meet the patient prior to the surgery and discuss the medical history, lab results and anesthesia plan. In the O.T a member of the anesthesia care will be with the patient throughout the procedure. After the procedure patient will be moved to the recovery room and a nurse will monitor the patient and provide medication to minimize pain, nausea and vomiting as needed. Then the patient will be discharged from recovery room on advice by anesthetist when he is stable and comfortable.
