How will I be monitored during surgery? PDF Print E-mail

AA of VA’s anesthesia team will monitor you using advanced technology to follow your body’s normal functions such as heart rate, breathing rate, blood pressure and oxygen saturation in your body. Additional sophisticated technology is available for us to gauge the anesthetic gases we administer to further ensure your safety. Occasionally, based on the type of surgery or your underlying illnesses, we may place invasive monitors call an arterial line (see link) or a pulmonary artery catheter (see link) to more closely monitor your heart, blood pressure and various laboratory measurements like your hemoglobin or potassium levels. Your anesthesia team translates the data from the monitors to maintain, diagnose and treat your body while providing a safe tailored anesthetic.
