The science and art of anesthesia: Enhancing patient comfort and safety.
Anesthesia is a medical specialty that involves administering drugs or other agents to produce a temporary loss of sensation or consciousness, which allows for pain-free medical procedures. Anesthesia is essential in a wide range of medical procedures, from routine surgeries to complex and life-saving operations. One of the major challenges in the field of anesthesia is ensuring patient safety. While anesthesia is generally safe, there are certain risks associated with the administration of anesthesia, such as allergic reactions, airway obstruction, and cardiac arrest. Anesthesiologists must be able to identify and manage these risks to ensure that patients receive safe and effective anesthesia.Author(s): Takashi Dutta
