General Anesthesia / General Anesthesia in TIVA

During general anesthesia, the patient is placed into a gentle sleep by

  • a combination of barbiturates and analgesics
  • depending on the procedure, possibly also muscle relaxants.

At Rosenpark Clinic general anesthesia is done in the form of total intravenous anesthesia, so called TIVA. It is the method that is gentlest for patients and that can be controlled the best.

How does the procedure go?

General anesthesia is injected with a syringe and lets the patient fall into a sleep that lasts just a few minutes. To continue this sleep with TIVA, fast-acting anesthetic drugs are administered in the arm vein to allow the anesthesia to continue to work. This allows our anesthesiologists to dispense narcotics more accurate and adjust them to the functioning of the body, which they keep an eye on through the monitors. Thanks to the dynamic process of TIVA, the patient is responsive again soon after the operation ends.

In order to safeguard the respiratory system, we use the laryngeal mask whenever possible at Rosenpark Clinic. This negates the necessity of inserting a breathing tube. For the patient, this means that he/she will not have a sore throat, problems swallowing or hoarseness that is otherwise typical after the procedure.

You can find more information in our "Anesthesia" information sheets, which you can request from us free of charge.
