At the time of surgery the type of anesthesia will be determined by the surgeon according to your particular case and it is the Hospital’s standard procedure that every surgical patient is on a respirator, This respirator can be a tube in the throat or a mask on the face, since your safety is the most important for us, we consider that it is not safe to do surgery without a respirator because it is a useful equipment that allows the specialists to monitor all of the patients vital signs. When surgeries last more than an hour local anesthetic is not suitable and even in those cases the respirator is often needed.

The difference between general anesthetic and sedation is simply the dosage given. In both cases, only the necessary dosage is given to the patient to maintain a meticulous balance so he or she would remain unconscious and with no awareness or memories of the procedures.
