Work at the Department
Work at the Department of Anesthesia is performed in 7 surgical operating theatres, 3 catheterization rooms and an anesthesia outpatient unit. The Department of Anesthesia consists of four divisions:
- Division for Cardiac Surgery Anesthesia
- Division for Vascular Anesthesia
- Division for Endovascular Anesthesia and X-ray imaging
- Anesthesia outpatient unit
More than 4500 anesthesia procedures are performed annually. ll operating theatres are equipped with the latest monitors and anesthesia machines. 8-10 cardiac surgery and 6-8 vascular surgery procedures are performed every weekday.
An extremely caring and profoundly committed group of anesthesiologists and anestheticians within the department is engaged in health, scientific and research activities.
Surgical, endovascular and electrophysiological procedures are performed under general, regional and combined anesthesia and analgosedation. We are particularly dedicated to the implementation of the early postoperative recovery program after cardiovascular surgery. Pre and postoperative pain therapy is administered both in the operating theatre and in all other organizational units of the Institute, especially in intensive care units, where anesthesiologists make a great contribution in all other types of modern intensive care of the most difficult patients.
We make sure that even the most complex surgical procedures are performed safely and with maximum patient comfort.
