The Cause Can Be Awakened When Under General Anesthesia?
I read from one website that there were patients who woke up from general anesthesia when the surgery took place. Then did the patient immediately feel pain because he was awakened from general anesthesia when the surgery took place? and why the patient can wake up from general anesthesia during the surgery? thx
Hello, good morning..
The condition is awakened when under general anesthesia (general anesthesia) is called anesthesia awareness or intraoperative awareness. This condition is very rare, it is estimated that only occurs in one or two people out of 1,000 people undergoing general anesthesia. In anesthesia awreness, the patient can hear the doctor speak, remembering what is around him and things related to the operation he is undergoing. However, such patients usually do not feel pain when experiencing adhesive awareness. Worse conditions can also occur (although rarely), in which the patient can feel pain during surgery but cannot move or tell the doctor.
Anasthesia awareness during surgery can occur due to various causes. This condition is more often experienced in patients with diverse medical conditions, and in certain operations where administration of doses for anesthesia cannot be given as usual for patient safety reasons, for example in cardiac surgery, saecar surgery with general anesthesia, or emergency surgery. In addition, another study said that congenital adhesion can also occur due to daily alcohol use, drug addiction, and depressive disorders.
Prior to surgery, the anesthetist will usually see the patient who will undergo surgery to study the health conditions they have, including a history of previous anesthesia. If you are going to undergo surgery that requires general anesthesia in the near future, to reduce the risk of anesthesia awareness, it is important for you to inform your anesthesiologist about the following information: problems that occur in a previous history of anesthesia / anesthesia (especially if you have previously experienced anesthesia awareness ), the medications you routinely consume (including over-the-counter medicines and herbal medicines), the history of the use of illegal drugs or alcoholic drinks, and the anxiety you feel related to the operation to be performed, terminating anesthesia awareness.
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
