Department of Anaesthesiology


Surgical procedures require an induced state of unconsciousness, a state of total/partial lack of responsiveness – Anaesthesiology is the branch of medicine that helps achieve, maintain, and reverse such that surgical procedures can be carried out on a patient. Anaesthesia is administered based on the type of surgery that a patient ought to undergo and the extent of pain relief that the patient requires.
