If you are in need of a vasectomy
but have been advised by your doctor to go through general anesthesia as
opposed to local, don’t fret. Here’s everything you need to know.
Anesthesia is medical procedure that renders patients both impervious to pain and unconscious by using a mixture of injectable drugs and gas inhalation. While sleeping under the influence of general anesthesia, the brain is unable to register pain signals from surgical incisions. This is part of the reason why vital bodily functions (such as breathing) are monitored and controlled, allowing the patient to remain stable.
Stemming from the Greek words ἀν, meaning “without,” and αἴσθησις meaning “sensation,” anesthesia is induced by both an anesthesiologist and certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA). In certain cases, a muscle relaxant is also administered.
