Each patient referred to our clinic is evaluated prior to their operations either at the anesthesiology polyclinic or the ward where they are hospitalized. Our physicians select the most ideal type of anesthesia and postoperative pain management (analgesia) for the patient based on their history of previous surgeries, overall health condition, known chronic diseases, regular medication, allergies, upcoming operation, patient preferences and a number of other factors. For this purpose, patients go through specific laboratory tests, investigations and consultations after an in-depth examination and evaluation. The anesthesiologist informs the patient on matters to take heed of during the entire process and answers their questions. Our objective at this point is to make sure that the patient undergoes the planned surgery uneventfully and remains healthy and comfortable all along.
On the day of surgery, the patient is accompanied by their nurse to the preparatory section. Information like identity details, type and region of the upcoming surgery, allergies and known chronic diseases are inquired and confirmed once more. Afterwards, venous access is gained, and a sedative is administered, if deemed necessary. The operation is then performed in a fully-equipped operating room under the appropriate anesthesia. All vital systems, including the heart, lungs, brain etc., are monitored for anesthetic depth using advanced monitoring equipment during the course of the operation. Once the operation has been completed, the patient is transferred to a special recovery room. All vital functions and pain status are closely observed until the patient is ready to be transferred back to the ward. So as to detect symptoms of pain and any possible complication, observation of the patient continues by a physician and a team that we are also a part from the moment they arrive at the ward and until they are discharged.
