Your physician may prescribe anesthesia for you, but he or she should also know whether it is safe for you to receive anesthesia as well. Do you know what anesthetic is? An anesthetic is an drug that can be used to help you sleep. Anesthetic drugs can be divided into two categories: general anesthetics and regional anesthetics. General anesthetics are used to help you relax, and regional anesthetics are used to help you relax more efficiently.
Anesthetic drugs are used to help people relax in different ways. General anesthetics are used to help you relax and unconsciousness is the goal. General anesthetics can be grouped into two categories: sedatives and muscle relaxants. Sedatives, also known as hypnotics, are used to help you relax and may be used every other day. Muscle relaxants are used to relax muscles.
