What Every Patient Should Know about Anesthesia

What Every Patient Should Know about Anesthesia
BY ROB FORMAN
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

When patients undergo surgery, there is a doctor in the operating room – the anesthesiologist – whose job is a mystery to many of them, according to new research by a Rutgers physician. That is unfortunate, the researcher says, because if patients had a better sense of what this doctor does, it would improve the chances that their surgery will be both successful and more comfortable.

“I feel that anesthesia is the topic than many patients know least about,” says Ferdinand Iannaccone, an anesthesia resident at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School – who presented his findings at the annual meeting of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) – “and the best way to calm anxiety is to address the unknown.”

More than 104 million surgeries involving anesthesia are performed every year, according to the ASA. Nearly half are inpatient procedures in hospitals; the rest are done in ambulatory care settings.
