Ensuring Safety in Anesthesia for Patients

Explore how to ensure safety in anaesthesia for patients undergoing surgery by bustling myths and reinforcing the importance of dialogue.

Anesthesia can be a source of anxiety for many patients about to undergo surgeries or invasive procedures, mainly due to fears related to the loss of consciousness brought on by general anesthesia. Despite being an induced, controlled and reversible process, myths about anesthesia persist, requiring continuous efforts to demystify these conceptions and educate patients about the anesthetic procedure and pre- and post-surgical follow-up.


Guardians of health

As anesthesiologists, we position ourselves as guardians of patients’ health, starting with individualized care to dispel misconceptions about anesthesia. Patient safety is our priority, and the constant evolution of scientific research contributes to making anesthesia safer and safer. It is crucial to inform patients about the potential side effects and how they are managed, as well as to prepare them properly for the surgical procedure, emphasizing the importance of proper fasting, stopping certain medications, and adapting pre-surgical habits.


Anesthesia safely

Personalized dialogue prior to surgery is key to dispel fears associated with anesthesia and clarify the patient’s active role in the success of the procedure. During surgery, the anesthesiologist vitally monitors the patient, ensuring their safety and being ready to intervene in any adversity.


Constant vigilance

Our constant and vigilant presence, before, during and after surgery, is essential to minimize risks and ensure the patient’s well-being. Strengthening the dialogue with patients is crucial for them to understand the real risks associated with anesthesia and the importance of following medical guidelines, abandoning myths and actively contributing to the safety and success of their treatment.
