Anaesthesia. Medical care
We provide pain relief during and after surgery.
Anaesthesia means much more than just having a good sleep. Apart from ensuring that you sleep well, we make sure you are free of pain by preventing it from even occurring. To reach this goal we not only use standard medicines during anaesthesia but also local catheters, thus enhancing the tolerability of the general anaesthesia and also ensuring that you will remain free of pain in the hours and days following surgery. The healing process is positively influenced this way.
We make time for you.
Naturally we discuss all of these measures and procedures with you in detail, in calm and relaxed surroundings, and answer all your questions. We also take care of you after your surgery. We visit you daily in order to take care of your needs and provide you with further assistance.
Intensive care during surgery.
We take good care of you during surgery.
To guarantee your utmost safety, we use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment during surgery and later on in the recovery room to continuously check your vital functions. In the event of major surgery, the blood which is lost during the operation is collected and purified using specially designed apparatuses and returned to you in the recovery room. Therefor, in most cases the transfusion of donor blood can be avoided.
People are the focus.
That applies to us, too. No amount of equipment can replace the experience, care, constant attention and medical expertise offered by an experienced anaesthetist. All our anaesthetists are specialists who undergo regular advanced training in order to be able to treat and care for you in cooperation with the latest medical standards.
Pain relief during and after surgery.
In the event of surgery of the upper or lower extremities, local catheters will also be used in addition to the anaesthesia. The great benefit of such local anaesthesia is that pain does not occur during surgery, or only to a minimal extent, and consequently postoperative pain is also influenced very favourably. To reach this goal we use special perfusors, particularly during the first few hours following the operation, which enable medicines to be administered continually via a catheter. All patients fresh out of surgery are placed for monitoring in a specially designed and equipped recovery room for the first few hours. Large international studies have shown that the healing process is positively influenced by such catheterisation methods.
Pain therapy after surgery.
After surgery, pain therapy is getting started.
Patients having undergone surgery will be visited by the anaesthetist to check their well-being - both in the recovery room, immediately following surgery, and during the days following the operation. Should further pain therapy be needed, it can be arranged quickly and sufficiently during such visits.
All anaesthetists at the Schön Klinik Harthausen have undergone extensive training and have many years of experience in the various fields of emergency medicine. The doctors of the anaesthesiological department work regularly as senior emergency doctors and members of the district emergency services. The coordination and management of emergency care at the clinic is the responsibility of the Department of Anaesthesiology.
