Anesthesiology

Anesthesia is a way to control pain during a surgery or procedure by using medicine called anesthetics. It can help control your breathing, blood pressure, blood flow, and heart rate and rhythm.

Anesthesia may be used to:

  • Relax you
  • Block pain
  • Make you sleepy or forgetful
  • Make you unconscious for your surgery

Other medicines may be used along with anesthesia, such as ones to help you relax or to reverse the effects of anesthesia.
