Intravenous and Gas: General anesthesia is usually started (aka induction) with medications through one of the veins (usually in the hand). Medications ("pills") are not used to start general anesthesia. In small kids, anesthesia is started with gas, during which the kid breathes mostly oxygen and a small percentage of a gas that helps the kid fall asleep.
