Does Any Local Anesthetic Cause Some Sedation In A Patient
Not in right dose: Local anesthesia is injected to cause numbness in a small area of the body, such as around a tooth before dental work. In proper doses, it causes no side effects at all.

Any anesthesiologists with experience on what anesthesia is safe if you have had a stroke under general anesthesia and neuro rxn to local?
Its complicated: People recover from strokes and have very different sequelae (fancy term for your condition/recovery). If you are fully recovered or even recovered such that there is little in in neuro deficits (motor or sensory changes) then any anesthesia will be safe.

Not usually: General anesthesia in the hands of a skilled anesthesiologist is a safe approach. However there are circumstances when during anesthesia, blood pressure falls too far and for too long, or there is a prolonged period of lack of oxygen, that can result in brain damage.

If you can find what you want, fine. If you fear GA, try to find help w/ this fear - you can! Best! ...Read more
Different types: If inhalation anesthetic is being considered for very minor dental surgery, nitrous oxide is the most common. In more extensive oral and maxillofacial surgeries performed in the hospital, your anesthesiologist will choose the best type of anesthetic depending on length of procedure, your medical history, current health, and medications. Keep smiling. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
