Washington Surgi-Clinic’s Anesthesia Services
A certified nurse anesthetist administers all anesthesia and is present during all phases of the chosen procedure. Patients are monitored continuously for their pulse oximetry, blood pressure, pulse during the anesthesia and until she awakens fully from the anesthesia. As an important safety measure, resuscitative equipment is readily available at all time.
Anesthesia Options at Washington Surgi-Clinic
Patients may choose from several methods of anesthesia services:
- General (asleep)
- Twilight (conscious or awake sedation)
- Local (awake)
For general anesthesia, we utilize very short-acting anesthetic agents, which are carefully given at an individualized dose depending on the patient’s weight, response and length of the procedure.
