Anaesthesia plays a vital role in pain management. Anaesthetics are drugs that can stop pain signals travelling along your nerves from reaching your brain and being felt. A local anaesthetic can block the signals from a specific part of your body, while a general anaesthetic can all of the signals and put you to sleep for an operation.

Anaesthesia can be given in several different ways, including as intravenous injections, epidurals, and as gas. The anaesthetic will always be administered by a specially trained doctor known as an anaesthetist, who will explain the procedure in detail beforehand and monitor you carefully throughout the procedure and recovery.
