Anaesthesiology & Pain Management

Anaesthesiology deals with relieving the pain of the patients and providing total care before, during and after the surgery.


What do anesthesiologists do?

Besides the function mentioned above, there are other functions that these professionals perform.


Pain relief in surgery

A patient will meet an anesthesiologist before surgery. The doctor will then evaluate his condition and devise a plan of operation to meet his individual needs. Subsequently, medicine is administered on the day of the surgery to relieve pain. General Anaesthesia makes the patient fall asleep during the surgery. While sedation makes the patient unaware of the procedure, regional anaesthesia numbs a particular area.

During the surgery, anesthesiologists monitor the following functions –

  • Heart rhythm and rate
  • Fluid balance
  • Breathing
  • Body temperature
  • Blood pressure


After the surgery, the anaesthesiologists will help reverse the effects of anaesthesia and make the patient comfortable during the recovery process.


Critical and emergency care 

In emergencies, anaesthesiologists diagnose the patients, help in containing infections and provide breathing and circulation aid. They can also offer advanced life support and pain control. Before the surgery, they help the patients prepare themselves for the procedure.


What are the branches of specialization of anaesthesiologists?

Though anaesthesiologists are primarily trained for surgical interventions, they may also specialize in certain areas, which include –

  • Cardiac anaesthesia
  • Obstetrics
  • Paediatric anaesthesia
  • Neuroanaesthesia
  • Care of the dying in hospice
  • Palliative care
  • Pain control and advice
