Types of Anesthesia
The different types of anesthesia available include the general anesthesia, regional anesthesia, and local/monitored anesthesia. The CRNAs administer general anesthesia in an extensive surgery that requires the patients to be unconscious. The regional/local anesthesia alleviates pain on a small part of the body, for example, an arm, leg, or lower part of the abdomen. The local anesthesia controls pain during the operations on the small areas of soft tissues. Other types of anesthesia used by CAA include pediatric, obstetric, cardiovascular, and thoracic anesthesia.
