Under general anesthesia, the doctors can operate without the patient something subcommittee of the process. While you are in this deep sleep induced by medication, to suppress the pain of the surgery.
If the patient is under anesthesia, it must be artificially ventilated, the anesthesiologist monitors the whole time, the cardiovascular values of the patient. To respond adequately to any situation.
General anesthesia: safe operation during surgery
Usually a general anesthetic is first initiated by an intravenous administration of pain killers and sleeping pills. At the time of actual surgery, the patient with anesthetic gas is supplied through a mask, which he continues to hold in sleep state.
If the surgery is approaching its end, the supply of drugs throttled slowly but steadily. The patient then wakes up again has been relatively quickly, whereby it can come later, depending on tolerability to nausea, but not.
The drugs in general anesthesia not only take on sleep and the pain of being operated influence, even the memory is turned off so that the patient is asleep and not even subcommittee how surgeons work still to do what the anesthesiologist. And since you can watch rare case of an operation can be thought of as a rule, hard to know what is happening with the OP. This loss of control is also one of the greatest fears of many people before they can put themselves under general anesthesia.

Before we are in the hands of the anesthesiologist must I enter answer some questions on disease history. Thus, some may be disturbed, but these issues do not mean that something bad may happen during the general anesthesia, but should result in that the anesthetist is closely informed.
To the right decisions can be made and the patient needs to worry. The system of general anesthesia is completely safe. For some operations, regional anesthesia is an alternative, others can only be done at a general anesthetic because of its complexity.
