The practice at the ORTO Clinic is to awaken patients from anaesthesia in the operating room. After checking that you feel well, the nurses will take you to the intensive care unit or your room.
During the first hours after the surgery you will be visited by nurses to ensure that you are comfortable.
If you are in the intensive care unit, the day after the surgery your heart rate, breathing, and blood pressure will be monitored using special equipment. The intensive care nurses will keep watch of your recovery from the surgery.
The anaesthesiologist will select postoperative analgesics for you depending on the nature of the surgery and how you are feeling.
