Tonight, I have had a Caesarean section but I am confused that the anesthesia that was given to me was a general anesthetic or not because when I was operated on I was suddenly unconscious and only heard the sounds of my environment. Because previously there was no information that I was totally sedated by the hospital

Hello Novia, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


I try to help explain.


Caesarean section is a medical procedure that aims to expel the baby through incisions in the mother's abdomen and uterus. There are several factors that cause a mother can not give birth normally, and require caesarean section, these factors such as:

Fetal distress
Narrow pelvis
Big baby
High blood history

Caesarean section generally performed three types of anesthesia. General anesthesia, regional anesthesia and local anesthesia. General anesthesia is an action taken to make the patient unconscious, feel no pain, and do not remember the medical action taken, for example, a tumor-binding operation on the head. Regional anesthesia is an anesthetic procedure in several parts, for example caesarean section. Whereas local anesthesia is anesthetic procedure locally or in certain parts, for example anesthesia in circumcision or circumcision.


So the anesthesia done to you is probably a regional anesthetic, where the anesthetized body area is part of the waist down. That is why regional anesthesia sometimes patients can still hear voices, but cannot feel pain or pain.


Hope this helps, thank you.
