What Services Will CAA Provide?

Anesthesia services provided by the Capitol Anesthesiology Association include local/monitored anesthesia care, general, and regional anesthesia.

Local/Monitored Anesthesia Care, is administered when the procedure involves small areas of soft tissue. Medications that help reduce anxiety and pain, given through an IV give the patient a relaxed feeling while they physician prepares the area to be operated.

General Anesthesia, used in more extensive surgeries such as abdominal, brain, chest or heart surgeries, is performed when the patient is completely unconscious and still. This type of procedure requires more advanced monitoring of the patient’s vital signs.

Regional Anesthesia, often used in childbirth or surgeries that focus on one area of the body, is administered by giving a sedative to the patient and the anesthetic applied next to the nerves that supply the feeling to the operated part of the patient’s body.
