Our newest technology
The latest, evidence-based anesthesia techniques are utilized in the operating rooms, delivery rooms and procedure areas. The anesthesia care team at St. Elizabeth's consists of an anesthesiologist and certified registered nurse anesthetist who will care for the patient throughout their visit. Prior to each planned procedure, the anesthesiologist scheduled to care for the patient will conduct a pre-operative evaluation to formulate an appropriate, individualized anesthesia plan.
The anesthesiologist and patient work together to develop the best plan for their care during the procedure. The type of anesthesia is chosen based on the safety of the patient, the ability to provide a speedy recovery and allow the patient to go home sooner. There are four major types of anesthesia utilized that can be combined to best meet the patient's needs.
