We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient’s vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures. Our anesthesia monitor rivals that you might find in universities. We monitor blood pressure (systolic, diastolic and mean), continuous EKG, oxygen levels, carbon dioxide levels, temperature, respiratory rate and heart rate. This allows us to change the amount of anesthesia we are giving immediately or administer drugs in to the iv to help keep our patients stable and pain free.
