Learn more about anesthesiology on FREIDA™

Anesthesiology is the practice of medicine dedicated to the relief of pain and periprocedural care of patients before, during and after invasive procedures. It is, quite literally, the physician anesthesiologist’s job to keep patients alive during invasive procedures.

By controlling a patient’s level of awareness (hypnosis), response to pain (analgesia), memory (amnesia) and muscle tone (relaxation), the physician anesthesiologist makes a surgical event a “non-event” for the patient while providing an optimal surgical environment for the team.
