Both are the same: General anesthesia combines both intravenous and inhaled anesthetics. All anesthetics will have reversible effects on heart function. The physician anesthesiologist and other members of the anesthesia care team work jointly to ensure patient safety, especially patients with heart problems. Patients with known heart problems should discuss those issues with the Anesthesiologist before surgery

Unusual: It is highly unusual for oxygen saturation to drop in flight since the ambient oxygen concentration in the cabin is maintained. It is not uncommon, however, for an individual to experience blood clot in the lower extremities, especially during long flights. It is most likely a sign if PE. Therefore, please seek medical consult for doppler ultrasound of the legs to check for venous thrombosis.
