Behind the Mask: Navigating the Patient’s Journey from Point to Point | Expert Tips & Insights Of THANC Hospital

INTRODUCTION:

In the sea of faces, we are recognized with our masks on.

As anaesthetists, our role isn’t limited to ensuring your comfort during surgery. We humbly take it upon ourselves to also optimize your health beforehand, considering it a privilege to be part of your healthcare journey.

In the humble service of our patients, we’ve seen our role as anaesthetists evolve. It’s no longer confined to the operating room or to just before surgery. Now, we have the privilege of accompanying our patients from the moment they’re admitted, through their surgery, and until they’re ready to return home. We consider it an honor to serve as their perioperative physician, being there for them every step of the way.

Beyond the operating room, we as anaesthetists also manage critical emergencies and provide pain relief in various settings

WHAT  WE DO :

  1. PREOPERATIVE ASSESSMENT: Before the surgery, we evaluate your overall health, medical history, and discuss the best anaesthetic options for you. This helps us plan for a safe and effective anaesthesia administration.
  2. ADMINISTRATION OF ANAESTHESIA: On the day of the surgery, we administer the anaesthesia. This could be general anaesthesia (where you’re completely unconscious), regional anaesthesia (where a large area of your body is numbed), or local anaesthesia (where a small specific area is numbed), depending on the surgery and your health condition.
  3. MONITORING DURING SURGERY: Throughout the surgery, we continuously monitor your vital signs (like heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen levels) and adjust the anaesthesia levels accordingly to ensure your safety and comfort.
  4. POSTOPERATIVE CARE: After the surgery, we manage your emergence from anaesthesia, ensuring you wake up safely and comfortably. We also manage any postoperative pain.
  5. IN THE WARD:we As anaesthetists, we monitor your recovery, manage your pain, treat any complications, coordinate with other healthcare professionals, and educate you about the recovery process after surgery.

WHAT WE HAVE

  • Airway Tools: We use masks and tubes to help you breathe and deliver gases during surgery.
  • TIVA Equipment: We use a special pump to give anaesthetic through an IV.
  • Drug Delivery Devices: We use syringes and pumps to give medications and fluids directly into your bloodstream.
  • Monitors: We use devices to keep a close eye on your heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen levels, and body temperature during surgery.
  • Anaesthesia Workstation: This is a complex set of equipment, including a gas system, a breathing system, and a ventilator, that we use to safely administer anaesthesia. We also use neuro monitoring devices to protect your brain and nerves during surgery, and other tools like air filters, vaporizers, resuscitators, and endoscopes as needed

AT THE END TO SAY……

Before your surgery, we take steps to help you bring your health as near normal as possible. During the procedure, we’re present, quietly doing our best to ensure your safety and comfort. After the surgery, we remain by your side, assisting you as you recover and return to your daily life. As a team, with the help of your surgeon and other healthcare professionals.we’re committed to taking care of you at every step of the journey.

BEHIND COVERS: BEYOND THE START TILL THE EXIT

Faces may feel unseen,

But ears have heard your Tales tight,

Striving to set things right,

Joining you in your plight.

Eyes ever watchful as you journey forth,

Illuminating your path, guiding your course,

All with the aim to bring you peace as night falls

push the fear aside

Always with you in your fight by your side

For as the night cross lets enter the days light together with pride.
