Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney Discusses Anesthesia
As an experienced Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney I often receive questions about what kinds of anesthesia will be provided during a surgical procedure. You can have monitored anesthesia care in Tampa, FL, where you’re aware but sedated to the pain and the effects of your anesthesia; you’re not intuabted or fully anesthetized or in the lay term knocked out, although, we’re not trying to say that medical providers knock you out.
Full anesthesia, where a patient is intubated, requires that the patient is asleep. The nurse anesthetist or the anesthesiologist is monitoring your vital signs and your levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide.
You can have a variety of types of anesthesia from local anesthesia, where just a spot on your body is anesthetized, and you can be lightly sedated under monitored anesthesia care and you can be fully sedated and intubated where you are asleep.
Do you have questions about anesthesia? If so, contact the experienced Tampa Medical Malpractice Attorney Betsey Herd.
