Anesthesia and Resuscitation
What is anesthesia?
In modern medicine, anesthesia is a state of insensibility that allows surgery to be performed for patients in a healthy and convenient way.

The state of health is checked, existing diseases and the rationale for the surgical intervention are evaluated, and the anesthetist decides what type of anesthesia is suitable for a particular patient. General anesthesia should be performed only by an anesthetist. Today there are many drugs for general anesthesia. In addition to intravenous anesthesia, anesthetic gases used with oxygen may also be preferred. Suitable drugs are always selected according to the characteristics of the patient. Today’s modern medicine used drugs that give much better results than before.
