The modern anaesthesia is comparatively of recent origin dating back to a century and half, before which “Surgery was an agony”. Introduction of general Anaesthesia in 1846 (W.T.A.Morton), combined with aseptic techniques, permitted increasingly extensive and complex operations to be performed. Present day monitoring facilities and pain relief made the Sevier safe.
Duties of the department of Anaesthesia have extended beyond operating rooms to cardiopulmonary resuscitation, critical care and pain management services. The department of Anaesthesiology has a significant role in surgeries. The department utilizes the most advanced equipments to cater to the varied requirements of patients undergoing various medical and surgical procedures and treatment. The Anaesthesiology team comprises specialist doctors with training in hemodynamic monitoring, management of Thoracic and Lumbar pain blocks under ultrasound guidance, fiberoptic intubation and intra and post-operative ventilator management.
