Have Questions About Anesthesia?

Before having anesthesia for surgery, childbirth, pain management, or any other procedure, ARANA advises patients to learn as much as they can about their anesthesia options; the do's and don’ts before and after anesthesia; how other medications interact with anesthetic drugs; possible side effects of anesthesia, and more. By educating yourself as much as possible, you will become an informed “partner” in your own anesthesia care. When in doubt, ask your anesthesia provider.
