Anaesthesia / Preoperative in Estepona


Many individuals often fear anesthesia more than the actual surgery or endoscopy. This feeling of vulnerability can be unsettling. Understanding these fears is the first step towards addressing them effectively.

Common Concerns and Realities

Anesthesia, while a critical component of modern medical procedures, often evokes more fear than the procedure itself. The primary source of this anxiety stems from the sensation of losing control and being dependent on others during a vulnerable state. This fear, although common, can be alleviated through proper understanding and preparation.

What to Expect During Anesthesia

To help ease these concerns, it is important to know what to expect during anesthesia. The process typically begins with the application of venous access to your forearm or the crook of your elbow. This allows for the administration of medication that works immediately. Patients are encouraged to focus on positive thoughts before falling asleep, as this can have a beneficial effect on the waking up phase. Factors such as age and gender can influence this experience, making it unique for each individual.

Transitioning After Your Procedure

Once the procedure is completed and the main effects of the anesthesia wear off, the intravenous access is removed. Patients can then slowly change back into their street clothes. Throughout this process, the primary focus is on ensuring patient comfort and a smooth transition from the procedure back to a normal state.

Ensuring Your Safety

One crucial aspect of post-anesthesia care is the necessity for adult accompaniment. Although some patients may feel fit and ready to resume normal activities, it is important to understand that reaction abilities are still impaired until the following day. This caution is based on pharmacological facts and is essential for ensuring patient safety. Activities such as driving or operating machinery should be avoided until full recovery is confirmed.

Comprehensive Procedures

Gastroscopies and colonoscopies, whether for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes, are common procedures performed under anesthesia. Each patient is considered individually, with their medical history and current health status taken into account. This personalized approach ensures that preparation for the procedure is tailored to the specific needs of each patient, enhancing the chances of a successful outcome.
