What is Critical Care?

Critical care is the specialized medical treatment provided to individuals who are seriously ill or injured and require intensive monitoring and treatment. Think of it as a dedicated team of medical superheroes working tirelessly to save lives.

Anaesthesia Explained

The definition of general anaesthesia is a state of controlled unconsciousness. An anaesthetist will administer various medicines, including an anaesthetic, to put a patient to sleep so that surgery can be performed without feeling pain or discomfort or having any memory of the surgery.

There are various types of anaesthesia, such as local anaesthesia, in which only a part of the body is numbed, and the patient is still awake. General anaesthesia is administered by inhaling the medicine through a mask or injection.

Once the surgery is completed, the anaesthetist will discontinue administering general anaesthesia drugs and wake the patient. The patient should have no memory of the procedure and should be pain-free due to pain medication administered before wake-up. Once the anaesthetist is satisfied that the patient’s condition is stable, the patient is returned to the ward.
