Jun 19, 15 Anesthesia Awareness Facts for National Anesthesia Services

Do you know why people are often afraid of undergoing a surgery or operation? It is not the fear of getting cut and dissected but it is the fear of waking up while their skin is open and internal body parts are being operated with medical tools. The public based national anesthesia services must include informing people about anesthesia awareness.

Anesthesia awareness is a very rare condition in which the sedative stops working on the patient and their senses are reactivated. Most often the patient can only hear the surrounding sounds. In some cases the patient may also start talking. In only 1 out of 1000 anesthesia awareness cases, the patient can feel the pain of medical knives, scissors, and needles. The feeling of pain occurs only when the pain relieving medicine wears off.

Safety Points

There have been some cases in which a patient wakes up during an ongoing surgery and their senses of feeling and hearing becomes active, but they are unable to speak or express their pain. Such extreme cases are rare to none. Anesthesia is today’s world is far safer than it was in twentieth century. The modern day medical practices are evolved after mixing pharmacology and technology.

For Patient

The patient must not be afraid of anesthesia. To be honest, modern surgeries have become possible only due to the miracles of anesthesia. For patients, communication with anesthesia provider is heaven on earth. The communication is done at two stages. Firstly, the patient must discuss their medical history, recent medical reports, current medical condition, medicines, allergies, and other relevant information with the anesthesia provider so that they can choose a better customized option for the patient.

The second communication stage is post-surgery communication. In this stage, the patient must discuss any rare event occurring with anesthesiologists including intense shivering, nightmares, bloody vomit, severe headache, unexplained fever, or any other related condition.

The Good News
