Type of Anesthesia

Types of anesthesia you can receive depend on your preference, preferences of your surgeon, as well as your medical conditions:

General anesthesia produces unconsciousness so that you will not feel, see, or hear anything during the procedure. The anesthetic medications are given to you through an intravenous line or as a gas through a mask under certain circumstances. Oral or IV pre-medication might be necessary to alleviate anxiety in some cases. Insertion of an endotracheal tube or a similar breathing device might be needed during the anesthetic.

Sedation is the type of anesthetic under which you are breathing spontaneously, without assistance. Level of sedation can vary from moderate (semi-conscious) to deep, depending on your preference and that of your surgeon. Supplemental oxygen is usually given during sedation.
