Working as a team, we are continuously trying to reach the highest level of safety and of patient satisfaction, striving to accomplish our aim: a hospital without pain. The Department of Anesthesia is professional and expeditious – a concept founded on modern medicine findings, on the well educated medical staff and the cutting-edge technology and equipment. Anesthetics and Monitoring procedures at the hospital are performed in accordance with ASA and ESA recommendations and their respective standards.
The Department of Anesthesiology provides the following services:
• Preoperative assessment and evaluation • Administration of anesthesia in all subspecialties • Regional anesthesia • Obstetric analgesia and anesthesia • Perioperative Pain management • Acute and Chronic Pain Treatment • Critically ill patients care
Consultative service is provided to each patient undergoing invasive diagnostic or therapeutic interventions which require the application of anesthesia or an operation procedure. The purpose of this consultation is to evaluate the patient’s general state, the level of risk and the need for pre-operative preparation.
2. Anesthesiology services
• Ambulatory anesthesia - Short-term anesthesia (local or general) applied at colonoscopy, gastroscopy, cystoscopy, MRI imaging or CT scanner, angiographic procedures and procedures performed by the In Vitro Fertilization Department. • Anesthesia for same-day surgical procedures - general and regional anesthesia for surgical interventions at the Outpatient Department which offers admittance, surgery and discharge within 24 hours. • Operating rooms anesthesia - all types of general, regional or combined anesthesia administered during pre-planned or emergency surgeries conducted by all surgical and gynecological departments at the hospital. In these procedures, the latest and the most safe intravenous and inhalation anesthetics are being used, as well as the latest generation of local anesthetics for regional anesthesia. This enables quick and pleasant awakening after the intervention, minimizing, thereby, possible side effects.
3. Pain relief treatment
• Pain relief treatment to hospitalized patients and to patients who are undergoing surgery (systemic, NCA, PCA or regional). • pain relief treatment to ambulatory patients. • Pain relief (analgesia) for pregnant women at the Delivery ward - all known regional analgesia techniques in obstetrics are being applied (spinal, epidural and the combined epi-spinal techniques), as well as the “walking epidural” technique, which does not restrict patients’ movement.
4. Treatment of patients at the post-operative care unit (PACU) and at the intensive care unit (ICU)
• Oxygen support and oxigenotherapy • Complete invasive and noninvasive monitoring of all patients • Ventilator support by a modern apparatus featuring all option modes for mechanical ventilation • Hemodynamic support with inotropic stimulation • Respiratory physiotherapy • Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition • thoracic drainage • hemodialysis, hemofiltration, and plasmapheresis.
