What to Expect the Day of Your Surgery
Every person regardless of surgery takes the basic same steps when they arrive.
You sign in and are taken to the Patient Care Center, where a nurse will get you ready for surgery. That involves paperwork and consent, IV placement, and more. Your loved ones can stay with you until you go into the operating room. If you choose, your loved ones can get text updates as you reach milestones of your surgery, so they stay informed and know when you’ll be finished.
Phase I Recovery is in the PACU, where we monitor you and make sure you are ready to return to your room. We then can move you to your room or patient care center for your phase II recovery, where loved ones can join you.
Team Member and Customer Satisfaction
We have happy team members, so it’s not surprising that we have low turnover and high customer satisfaction. We’re happy to be here and we do our jobs well, and that translates to you getting exactly the care you deserve and want.
One of the biggest questions you may have about your surgery is regarding anesthesia. You may be wondering what kind of anesthesia you will receive and how your pain and anesthesia will be managed.
You will have the opportunity to discuss the options for anesthesia with your anesthesiologist before surgery. Additionally, you will meet your anesthesia care team on the day of your procedure and will be able to discuss any questions or concerns you may have at that time. The anesthesia care team will balance your individual health and need for surgical anesthesia, in conjunction with your surgeon, to determine the safest possible choice. They will make recommendations and partner with you to plan your anesthetic. Your overall comfort is a priority for the team.
At North Memorial Health, we provide anesthesia through an anesthesia care team model meaning you will have a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) and an anesthesiologist who work together to ensure the best outcomes. Whether you are aware of it or not, you will always have an anesthesia care provider present from prior to your procedure until you are safely transitioned to postoperative care.
Types of Anesthesia
For each type of anesthesia, there are side effects, risks and benefits. These will be explained to you and you should discuss them thoroughly with your anesthesia care team prior to you procedure.
You’re alert, awake, and feeling completely aware. We numb a small area of your body to provide a service, such as stitches, and it wears off after we finish the procedure. In the case, you will work exclusively with your surgeon to keep you comfortable and will not involve the anesthesia care team.
This is a popular choice for some childbirths, because it numbs the lower half of your body, but you are awake and aware of what’s happening. This can also be used for some arm and leg procedures. Sedation may be administered in addition to keep you comfortable during your procedure.
This type of sedation is used for shorter procedures, such as colonoscopies. Your level of alertness and awareness can range from quite aware to drowsy to not remembering the procedure at all, depending on your needs and desires. You awaken quickly after the medicine is stopped.
This is when IV and inhaled medication is used for major surgeries and surgeries that would not otherwise be possible if you were awake. You may have a breathing tube for this type of anesthesia. The anesthesia care team will monitor your vital signs throughout your procedure and then reverse the medication once your procedure is complete. They will continue to watch you as you wake up.
We offer support options for deaf, hard of hearing, language assistance and translation services. These services are all free of charge and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for customers at North Memorial Health.
