The science of anaesthesiology consists of three main parts:
Essentially, it always necessary to precede any anaesthetic procedure with a rigorous preoperative assessment (risk assessment and optimisation of patient status) and that the quality of medical equipment and material (ie. a hospital with the latest technology) that is offered assures the best treatment all times.
It is important to influence the postoperative pain control offered during postoperative treatments and recovery. Any chronic pain is managed in consultation with other specialties. Although anaesthesia has an important role is not the only one.
Many potentially painful procedures and minimally invasive aesthetic medicine, endoscopy, radiology and other diagnostic tests may be performed with sedation offering minimal risk to the patient with maximum comfort and without the need for hospitalisation.
