All depends on the type and dosage of anesthesia; the activity of enzymes that break down drugs; the type of the nervous system of the patient; the duration and extent of the surgical intervention. Mean a lot also overall health, age. The young stand on their feet much sooner than older people.
There are early and late complications after anesthesia. Exit is often accompanied by sputannostew consciousness. Disoriented in time and space, the patient is not thinking where he was and what he. There are even hallucinations, which disappear fairly quickly.
Other side effects last for many hours. This is primarily tremors, fever. Patient burning up with fever, and in a few minutes he's shivering. Caring for them should respond quickly to these temperature extremes: that is to cover the patient, then remove the blanket and put on forehead with a cool damp cloth.
Another common complication from the anesthesia of all types – painful nausea turning into vomiting. Because it can disperse the surgical incisions, especially after eye, ENT surgeries, abdominal surgery in the abdominal cavity. It is therefore necessary to give the patient anti-nausea drug.
By weakening the anesthesia pain from surgically traumatized tissues is increasing. Can increase the pressure to appear tachycardia. To facilitate the state of patient periodically is administered a dose of painkillers.
After anesthesia very thirsty and tobacco and even Smoking. But these requests cannot be performed. A SIP of water can cause severe vomiting. A puff of cigarette clouding, and even loss of consciousness. Can only moisten the lips of the patient moistened cloth.
If you lose the sensitivity of some part of the body – fear not. Unable to disobey the muscles, disturbed coordination of movements – this too shall pass, when the anaesthetic drug is completely removed from the body.
Late effects of anesthesia more difficult. They usually make themselves felt after weeks. Some have such severe headaches that do not go to any comparison with the pain, occurring immediately after surgery. Others have vertigo, third course, fourth leg cramps. To get rid of them will help the therapist to whom should be immediately contacted.
The heart may give a late reaction to the anesthesia the changes in blood pressure, tachycardia. Sometimes there are problems with the liver, kidneys, because they remove the drugs.
But often some memory, especially after heart surgeries. But usually after a week it recovers. Much less common memory disorders can persist a year or longer. To quickly restore brain function help drugs-nootropics "Cavinton", "Cerebrolysin", "Fezam", etc.
Sometimes before and after surgery person covers barely controlled sense of fear. There are "panic attacks" that strongly undermine the nervous system. To exit this state, can not do without a therapist.
