Welcome to the website
private company "Anesthesia
spol. s r. o." providing public
one day surgery and
administration of anaesthesia is an extremely safe procedure today. How can
safety in anaesthesia be kept as high as it is, or even improved? Apart from the
above mentioned greater expertise of personnel performing anaesthesia, the
development of useful monitoring techniques, and proper risk assessment,
particularly before more difficult procedures in elderly patients and in
patients suffering from diverse concomitant disease, may help to maintain a high
safety standard even in high risk surgery.
Prior to administration of any type of
anesthesia the patient has to be checked up by a doctor specialist –
anesthesiologist who gets information on the physical and mental condition of
the patient. This contact between the patient and the anesthesiologist is very
Read carefully and give as all
The patient has to provide true and correct information so that the
anesthesiologist can avoid any risk from eventual complications in the course of
the anesthesia administering. It is rather important for the anesthesiologist to
get information on any previous surgical interventions undergone by the patient
and the respective consequences thereof – removal of any dual organ, etc.
The known consequences, such as, for example, cardiac problems, problems with
the blood pressure, postoperative nausea and vomiting, sore throat,
Information on suffering any eventual problems during anesthesia by a member of
the close family, and patient alone, is also relevant and should be available.
Information on any allergic reactions to any medicines that may be used in the
pre-surgery preparations, anesthesia administering or the postoperative care,
are also significant. In case of any such allergic reaction, it is important to
know when it happened, what are the clinical manifestations and whether it is
The doctor has to be informed of any diabetes, its duration and treatment, as
well as of any hepatitis suffered.
Information on eventual prolonged bleeding in case of injuries or tooth
extraction are very significant for the expected anesthesia.
All women in their reproduction period have to be asked for the date of their
last period and the possibility of being pregnant at the moment.
Smoking habit, or the length of time of being a smoker and the number of
cigarettes smoked during the day, is relevant information for the
anesthesiologist. As the smokers are much more affected by postoperative lungs
complications than the nonsmokers, it is recommended to quit smoking at least
four weeks before the planned anesthesia.
The patient is obliged to be honest and inform the anesthesiologist of eventual
use of drug, alcohol and medicaments. All these substances may cause serious
problems during administering of the anesthesia, if the anesthesiologist is not
prior informed of their use.
In case of taking medicines on permanent basis, the anesthesiologist would

medications may cause side effects if taken simultaneously with certain
After the anamnesis, the anesthesiologist should make complete physical checkup
– when you will come in Poprad. This checkup may be divided in two parts:
standard checkup and specific checkup, intended for finding out any possible
problems strictly related to the anesthesia.
The standard checkup includes auscultation of the lungs and the heart, control
of the blood pressure and neurological checkup.
Furthermore, the anesthesiologist is making detailed inspection and checkup of
the head and the neck for any anomalies that may cause difficult intubation
(placing plastic tube down the respiratory organs). This inspection and checkup
also includes nasal passabillity checkup, neck tumors or malformations and
checkup of the jaws and their mobility. When checking the jaws, it is important
to determine whether the patient has rotten or shaky teeth, dentures, etc. If
regional anesthesia is planned, the anesthesiologist must check the region where
the punctuation is planned (spinal cord, extremities) for any eventual
malformations or infections.
The laboratory analyses have to be selective, depending on the patient’s
condition and illness, as well as of the planned surgical intervention. The
standard analyses should control the value of hemoglobin, hematocrit, plated,
and hemokoagulations test – PT and APPT. Biochemistry analayze - glucose, urea,
creatine, proteins and laboratory urine test. Common an X-ray
screening you need not.
