Anesthesia has traditionally meant the condition of having the feeling of pain and other sensations blocked. This allows patients to undergo surgery and other procedures without the distress and pain they would otherwise experience.
Patients having surgery usually undergo a pre-operative evaluation. It includes gathering medical history, the use of previous anesthetics, a physical examination, blood work and consultations prior to surgery.
