Types Of Anaesthetics
There are different types of anaesthetics and the anaesthetic given to a patient is usually dependent upon the procedure they are having, although the patient’s health and preferences can also be a determining factor.
The page listings to the right cover the most common anaesthetic types and there is also a section which explains the education and training that a Specialist Anaesthetist must complete before they can be registered in the health system in Australia.
The information in this website is written only as a guide and should not replace information supplied by your Anaesthetist. After reading these information pages we encourage you to speak with your Anaesthetist if you have any questions regarding your anaesthetic. Further information on anaesthetics and anaesthesia is avaiaible in our Helpful Links And Resouces section.
