Anesthesiology

Anesthesia is the use of medicine to prevent or reduce the feeling of pain or sensation during surgery or other procedures. Given as an injection or through inhaled gases or vapors, different types of anesthesia affect the nervous system in various ways by blocking nerve impulses and pain.

In the hospital, highly trained professionals use a wide variety of safe, modern medicine and monitoring technology. An anesthesiologist is a doctor who specializes in giving and managing anesthetics — the medications that numb an area of the body or help you fall and stay asleep.
