          Types of Anesthesia

1.   General anesthesia
2.   Balanced anesthesia
3.   Local and regional block anesthesia
4.   Spinal or epidural anesthesia
        Methods of general anesthesia
1. Inhalation – facemask,
     laryngeal mask or
     endotracheal tube
   –   Nitrous oxide, halothane
       (Fluothane), Enflurane
       (Ethrane), Isoflurane
       (Forane), Desflurane
       (Suprane), Sevoflurane
2. Endotracheal
2. Intravenous
   –   Propofol (Diprivan),
       (Ketalar, ketaject)
       Local and Regional Anesthesia
1. Local anesthesia
   1.1. Topical application
   1.2. Topical infiltration
2. Nerve block
3. Epidural anesthesia
Stages of anesthesia
     Narcotic reversal (Narcotic

1.   Naloxone hydrochloride (Narcan)
2.   Flumazenil (Romazicon)
3.   Prostigmin
4.   Atropine Sulfate
Methods of Sterilization
1. Thermal (physical)
   –   Steam under pressure/moist heat
   –   Hot air / dry heat
2. Chemical
   –   Ethylene oxide
   –   Formaldehyde gas and solution
   –   Hydrogen peroxide plasma/vapor
3. Radiation (physical)
   –   Microwave (nonionizing)
   –   X-ray (ionizing)
     Principles of Sterile Technique
1. Only sterile items are used
   within the sterile field.
2. Sterile persons are gowned and
3. Tables are sterile only at table
4. Sterile persons touch only
   sterile items or areas, while
   unsterile persons touch only
   unsterile items or areas.
5. Unsterile persons avoid reaching over the
  sterile field, while sterile persons avoid
  leaning over an unsterile area.
6. The edges of anything that encloses sterile
  contents are considered unsterile.
7. The sterile field is created as close as
  possible to the time of use.
8. Sterile areas are continuously kept in view.
9. Sterile persons keep well within the sterile
10. Sterile persons keep contact with sterile
      areas to a minimum.
11. Unsterile persons avoid sterile areas.
12. Destruction of the integrity of microbial
      barriers results in contamination.
13. Microorganisms must be kept to an
      irreducible minimum.
