Anaesthesia for Ophthalmic Surgery

Anaesthesia plays a crucial role in many surgical procedures, and it therefore has an enormous impact on human health. It is a drug-induced, reversible state characterized by unconsciousness, anti-nociception or analgesia, immobility and amnesia. On rare occasions, however, the patient can remain unconscious longer than intended, or may regain awareness during surgery. There are no precise measures for maintaining the correct dose of anaesthetic, and there is currently no fully reliable instrument to monitor depth of anaesthesia. Although a number of devices for monitoring brain function or sympathetic output are commercially available, the anaesthetist also relies on clinical assessment and experience to judge anaesthetic depth. The undesirable consequences of overdose or unintended awareness might in principle be ameliorated by improved control if we could understand better the changes in function that occur during anaesthesia.
