Anesthesiology services

1.Consulting

Pre-anesthesiology consultative service is provided to each patient undergoing invasive diagnostic or therapeutic interventions which require the application of anesthesia or a surgical procedure. The purpose of this consultation is to evaluate the patient’s general condition, the level of risk and the need for pre-operative preparation.

  1. Anesthesiology services

Ambulatory anesthesia – short-term anesthesia (local or general) applied at colonoscopy, gastroscopy, cystoscopy, MRI imaging or CT scanning, angiographic procedures and procedures performed by the In-Vitro Fertilization Department.

Anesthesia for same-day surgical procedures – general and regional anesthesia for surgical interventions at the Day Hospital Department which offers admittance, surgery and discharge of patients within 24 hours.

Operating rooms anesthesia – all types of general, regional or combined anesthesia administered during pre-planned or emergency surgeries performed by all surgical and gynecological departments at the hospital. Newest and safest intravenous and inhalation anesthetics are being used in these procedures, together with the latest generation of local anesthetics for regional anesthesia. This enables quick and pleasant awakening after the intervention, minimizing, thereby, the possible side effects of anesthesia.

 

3.Pain relief treatment

Working as a team we are continuously trying to reach the highest level of safety and of patient satisfaction, striving to accomplish our aim: a hospital without pain.

  • Pain relief treatment to hospitalized patients and to patients who are undergoing surgery (systemic, NCA, PCA or regional)
  • Pain relief treatment to outpatients
  • Pain relief (analgesia) for pregnant women at the Delivery Ward – all known regional techniques in obstetric analgesia are being applied (spinal, epidural and the combined epi-spinal techniques), as well as the so-called “walking epidural” technique, which does not restrict patients’ movement.
