About the anaesthesiology unit
The Anaesthesiology-Reanimation unit provides healthcare to hospitalised patients and day patients, in the context of diagnostic and therapeutic examinations.
WHAT IS ANAESTHESIA?
The term “anaesthesia” describes a state of insensitivity to pain caused by medical or surgical procedures.
There are several types of anaesthesia:
- General anaesthesia: when the brain is put to sleep
- Local anaesthesia: when the nerves in a specific region of the body are put to sleep
In some cases, both techniques can be used in combination.
WHAT IS REANIMATION?
Reanimation is concerned with the monitoring and management of essential body functions (heart beat, breathing, blood pressure ...) during anaesthesia and the subsequent period.
PRESENTATION OF THE SPECIALISATION
The anaesthesiology-reanimation specialisation has revolutionised the operating area as it allows increasingly long and increasingly invasive surgical procedures. New medication, new devices and new techniques, such as hypnosis, continue to make it possible to significantly reduce complications, thereby allowing the patient to resume his/her autonomy relatively quickly.
All the modern general and locoregional anaesthesia techniques are available.
Operating rooms are equipped with cutting edge monitoring devices.
A team of specialised nurses pay special attention to the patient’s awakening.
