Advantages of Our Team of Physician Anesthesiologists
Each person on our team at SleepGuardian is a physician anesthesiologist, which means they have had extensive training in general anesthesia, airway, and emergency management. It also means that they can manage emergency situations if they arise as they are providing anesthesia for urology services.
A physician anesthesiologist has attended thousands of hours of training so that they can give each patient expert-level care. With this training, they learn to make critical decisions, prevent medical complications, evaluate a patient’s health, and respond to any underlying conditions. In short, they can make quick and professional decisions to protect the patient.
Our expert anesthesiologists work each day to ensure that each patient gets through the procedure safely. Therefore, we recommend that before each procedure, our team talks to the patient and makes sure that they understand what to do before the surgery. For instance, our team will make sure that the patients understand not to eat or drink six hours before the procedure. We also talk to the patients to understand any underlying concerns that may affect the procedure, such as:
- Heavy drug or alcohol use
- Underlying health issues, such as lung disease or heart problems
- Questions and anxieties patients have concerning the procedure
- Any experiences that the patients may have previously had with anesthesia
Our team has your patients’ best interests at heart. Therefore, we will do our best to calm their fears, and because the procedure occurs in the comfort of the doctor’s office, they can feel at ease before, during, and after the procedure.
