General Anesthesia

This type of anesthesia is performed for most general surgery procedures. A state of unconsciousness is induced with either intravenous or inhalational agents, and a breathing device or face mask is applied to assist the patient with breathing. In the majority of cases, the patient is placed on the ventilator and will remain on it for the duration of the surgery. IV opioids are given during and after the procedure to alleviate surgical pain.
