Anesthesia Consent

The practice of anesthesia and medicine is not an exact science. The reactions of each person can vary. Even when performed correctly, an anesthetic procedure can be associated with an extreme risk of serious bodily injury or death.

The following is a brief description of the anesthesia which will be available to you.
Please read carefully and discuss in detail with your anesthesia provider.

General Anesthesia

General anesthesia is a drug-induced loss of consciousness during which you are not arousable, even by painful stimulation. Your ability to independently maintain ventilatory function is often impaired. You will require assistance in maintaining a patent airway, and positive pressure ventilation may be required because of depressed spontaneous ventilation or drug-induced depression of neuromuscular function. Your cardiovascular function may be impaired. Constant monitoring and alterations in your anesthetic will be modified as needed during your anesthetic to maintain a safe continuum of anesthesia during your procedure.

The following anesthetic treatment may apply to your procedure instead:

Moderate Sedation or conscious sedation, commonly known as “twilight sleep”

Intravenous medications will be administered. You should not feel pain, you will be very relaxed, and you will sleep through the procedure. You are monitored closely and continuously during the procedure. You may be easily aroused and will recover quickly.

Patient Statement
