What is anesthesiology?

The word anesthesia is a Greek portmanteau which means “no feeling”. Some people mistakenly believe the term to mean the drugs used. In fact, anesthesia is simply the state of not being able to perceive feeling. General anesthesia, or total unconsciousness, is desirable for major surgeries such as open heart surgery. Local anesthesia, such as that used for tooth extraction, is commonly used for more minor procedures. But the end goal is always the same – to minimize the acute pain and distress caused by medical procedures.

Anesthesia, even for minor procedures, should always be administered by a licensed physician. For more information please consult CAA at
