Anesthesia is a temporary absence of the sensitivity of a part or all of the body induced by chemical substances to allow the performance of painful or stressful therapeutic or diagnostic procedures.General anaesthesia, in which the patient is unaware of and experiences no sensation for the duration of a surgical procedure, is an essential part of healthcare today.
The combination of safe and efficacious drugs, reliable monitoring equipment and drug delivery devices, and not least, highly trained and dedicated personnel has made general anaesthesia a routine medical procedure.
Linde Healthcare’s solutions in anaesthesia include:
