Having studied Anesthesiology,
Dr. Ghazvini has been trained
to manage pain and care for the general well-being of patients before, during and after certain medical procedures (such as surgeries). Dr. Ghazvini is trained to plan for and provide anesthesia locally, regionally or generally, and reduce the amount of pain felt during operations and similar procedures; Dr. Ghazvini is also trained to manage chronic pain.
The medical specialty of anesthesiology encompasses the delivery of total patient care, perioperative care and anesthetics for pain relief in patients - typically those undergoing surgery. Anesthesiologists play a vital role in preparing patients for their operations, relieving any pain that may be felt during surgery and ensuring a safe transition to the post-operative stage. Although anesthesiology is often thought of as just the relief of pain during surgery through anesthesia, anesthesiologists are trained to provide care outside of surgical settings.
When preparing patients for surgery, anesthesiologists will have an initial meeting to create a safe, personalized anesthetic plan for the specific operation, taking many factors into account. During the operation, these physicians will be responsible for the general welfare and critical life function of patients while they are sedated (under anesthesia), monitoring all of the patient’s vital signs and ensuring a smooth surgery.
Aside from their role in and around the operating room, anesthesiologists may also be found in intensive care units (ICUs), treating critically ill patients and assisting in their return to stable condition. Many anesthesiologists are also present in the delivery room during childbirth, caring for both the mother and child. Anesthesiologists will provide pain relief to the mother, while at time same time monitoring the vital signs of both the mother and child to protect critical life functions. Additionally, anesthesiologists may also provide care in pain management settings, diagnosing and treating various conditions that cause pain and providing pain management plans for both chronic and acute conditions.
