Service presentation

The Anesthesiology is a specialty that integrates a basic formation into Physiology, Pharmacology and Anatomy, with knowledge of internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Surgery in its different specialties.
Its fundamental mission is to make possible the operation looking and protecting the life of the patient in the face of the surgery. To carry out the integral attention of the patient during the surgical act, the anesthesiologist focuses its activity with the pre-operative evaluation, estimation of the anesthetic surgical risk, pre-operative optimization. Of this previous knowledge of the patient it will split the decision of the type of more suitable anesthesia: general, regional, combined or monitored sedation.
After the surgical procedure, patients are monitored in the anesthesia recovery room (URPA). On occasions, to be sick of risk or in very important interventions, the sick person goes to the Postsurgical ICU or Reanimation Unit. The Critical Care is part of the specialty and the knowledge of the critical patient is fundamental for the formation of the specialist. Another of the responsibilities of the faculty is the treatment of the acute and chronic pain that does not obey to conventional treatments and/or they require knowledge or special techniques. This is made by the Acute Pain Service and the Outpatient Pain Service
It has to be said, finally, that the Anesthesiology is a very young branch of the Medicine, with a big field of research. The development of the modern Surgery, the treatment of the refractory pain and of the techniques of hemodynamic and ventilatory support has transformed the Anesthesiology into a scientific specialty in continuous advance.
