Frequently Asked Anesthesia Questions

  • When will I meet my Anesthesiologist?
    Your anesthesiologist will interview you prior to your surgical procedure, and ask questions about your medical history and review any pre-operative testing you had performed. Together, with your anesthesiologist and surgeon, an anesthetic plan will be developed. You should feel free to discuss any concerns you may have about your care during your visit.

  • What is different about Ambulatory Anesthesia?
    Your anesthetic plan, that is discussed with you prior to surgery, is tailored to you to ensure you will be able to go home soon after your operation is completed. Special anesthetic techniques and medications are used to provide a swift recovery from the effects of anesthesia.

  • What types of anesthesia might I receive?
    • General anesthesia – Under general anesthesia, you are asleep and your whole body is free of pain.
    • Monitored anesthesia Care (MAC) – You will be given pain medication and/or a sedative, in conjunction with a local anesthetic, to keep you comfortable during surgery.
    • Regional anesthesia – You remain awake, but the entire area of your body affected by the surgery is made free of pain.
    • TIVA
    • Local anesthesia – You remain awake, but the body part being operated on will be numb to pain.

  • What are the common side effects?
    Mild nausea and vomiting for a day or two after surgery is not uncommon. It is more likely to occur if you have a history of nausea and vomiting with past surgeries, or if you are susceptible to motion sickness. Depending on the type of anesthesia you receive, you may experience a sore throat, headache, drowsiness, muscle ache and/or fatigue for a few days after your procedure.

  • Will I be billed separately by the Anesthesiologist?
    If you received anesthesia, you will be billed separately by Anesthesiologists of Middletown,
    for their professional fees. These fees are not included in the surgical center facility fees. If you have any questions regarding anesthesia charges, please call Anesthesiologists of Middletown at 860-347-0720.
