They numb the part of the body that is being operated on:
Peripheral nerve catheter anesthesia consists of the continuous infusion of anesthetics through a catheter (very small soft plastic tube) near the nerves involved in the area to be operated on. This type of anesthesia numbs the part of the body around the catheter so that a surgical procedure can be performed without pain. This technique also serves as an analgesic (painkiller) in the operated area and lasts during the post-operation period: the infusion of anesthetics through the peripheral nerve catheter is continued in the recovery room, your hospital room and sometimes even at home.
The Nadine de Rothschild Foundation has provided a neuromonitoring device in the operating room for paediatric surgery.
