The procedures are performed by the surgeon whom you wished to consult and who examined you during the consultation(s) prior to the operation.
If you are under local or loco-regional anaesthesia, you can ask any questions you like during the operation.
If you wish, you can also view the operation on a screen, filmed live during the operation.
Monitoring of vital signs
During long-term operations, the pulse rate, pressure, and oxygen content of your blood are measured continuously. The electrocardiogram is displayed on a monitor at all times for major operations. A drip is used to keep an open venous line. An anaesthetist or specialist nurse monitors everything on a constant basis and remains ready to intervene.
Being distressed, anxious or tense has an adverse effect on vital signs. The administration of a tranquiliser (Dormicum, Seresta, Lexotanil) has a favourable relaxing effect. For people who are calm and/or who wish to leave the clinic soon after the operation, it is better not to take anything. In any case, it is preferable of someone goes home with you.
Self-control, self-confidence, confidence in your surgeon and in the care team is better than any premedication. If you still want a tranquiliser, feel free to talk to your surgeon or anaesthetist during the consultation, who will be happy to access them for you.
