Patients are our priority, and we want you to feel at ease about receiving anesthesia care.
However advanced we may have become technologically, we all still crave one-on-one connections. That’s why we’ve placed good communication at the core of everything we do. You can trust us to communicate fully with you and with your loved ones, with each other, and with every member of your medical team. For us, these moments of personal connection and one-on-one communication are not only gratifying and meaningful, they inform every part of your anesthesia care plan.
At Medlink Health Anesthesia, we share one goal: to be sure you are safe and comfortable throughout your procedure. Our uniquely qualified physicians will talk to you about any medications you’re taking, your current health, and any past illnesses to create an anesthesia care plan that is customized exclusively for you. Throughout your procedure, your anesthesia team will continue this same level of personalized care, making any adjustments as needed.
While it’s true that each patient’s anesthesia care plan is customized, the Medlink Health Anesthesia experience is always the same. You will recover in a comfortable, warm environment. You won’t wake up alone. Someone from our team will be there to make sure you are feeling well. You won’t be rushed. You can take your time waking up, and your anesthesia team will stay in touch with the nursing staff to make sure you’re comfortable. We’ll make sure that the people waiting for you know that you are doing great, and roughly how long it will be until they can see you..
Bottom line? We don’t want you to feel concerned about anything to do with your procedure except preparing for it in advance and recovering fully afterward. You can rest assured that our anesthesia providers and the rest of your medical team are fully prepared to take care of everything else, from admission through discharge
What is Anesthesia?
There are several types of Anesthesia: Local, Regional, MAC, and General.
Anesthesia is designed to block pain to varying degrees during surgical procedures. Depending on the type of anesthesia required, it may be administered intravenously, by inhaled gas, by injection, or, at times, in a combination of the above methods.
During surgical procedures, anesthesia is administered by an Anesthesiologist or Nurse Anesthetist, who specializes in administering analgesia and anesthesia.
