What is Anesthesia?
Anesthesia is a state of transitory loss of sensation, usually executed to proceed with the surgical procedure. There are different types of anesthesia: general anesthesia, sedation, regional anesthesia, and local anesthesia. These are the broader terms; there are further types of anesthesia. Total intravenous anesthesia or TIVA is used to avoid the effects of volatile anesthesia. Spinal block or anesthesia is a common type of anesthesia used for major surgeries like C-sections and knee replacement. In this type of anesthesia, spinal anesthetic injects the anesthesia into intrathecal space, that is, the spine; this blocks the sensation in the lower body. Spinal anesthesia, also known as an epidural anesthetic, comes under the category of regional anesthetics, where nerve block anesthesia is used to numb a larger region of the body.
Apart from anesthesia injection, there are numbing creams, lidocaine cream, and anesthetic spray. The use of benzocaine, prilocaine, bupivacaine in the form of anesthesia injection, lidocaine cream, dental anesthesia spray, or numbing spray is widespread in dentistry.
