AIRK meeskond

Anaesthesia allows one to perform surgeries and other painful procedures by creating analgesia (absence of pain) quickly, safely and pleasantly, reducing anxiety (unconsciousness during general anaesthesia) and if necessary, relaxing muscles. One very important aspect of anaesthesia is the assurance of the physiological balance of the body (normal blood pressure, oxygen, breathing, body temperature) during, before and after the surgery.

If the patient undergoing surgery has serious comorbidities, they will meet an anaesthetist prior to the surgery at the clinic. The aim is to achieve the optimal condition of the patient for the surgery; if necessary, the treatment can be corrected and you can consult with specialists. 

The department of intensive care deals with the treatment of patients in a severe condition. The most common reasons for a referral to intensive care are cardiac, respiratory and renal insufficiency, impaired consciousness, delirium. We also treat patients in intensive care for the first couple of days after major surgery.

Patients with chronic pain are admitted by our pain physicians at the Ravi and Magdaleena Hospital units (ontological patients).
