The Capitol Anesthesiology Association (CAA) is a medical practice based in Austin, Texas that specializes in anesthetic treatment for surgery and other medical operations. Established in 1973, CAA provides patients with all majors types of anesthetic treatment, including general anesthesia, regional anesthesia, and local anesthesia among other treatments.
Anesthesia is meant to numb the physical senses and make aggressive operations such as surgery more tolerable and comfortable for the patient. Here is a brief rundown of all the primary medical services that CAA provides.
Certain major operations involving the heart, brain, abdominal region, or any other area of the body that it considered vital, require general anesthesia, which is when the patient is asleep and unconscious. A brain that is under general anesthesia will not respond to pain.
When only a certain part of a tissue requires numbing for a small operation, a local anesthetic is administered. Novocain, for example, is used for dental operations.
When an entire region of the body, such as arms, legs, or abdominal area, need numbing to pain, a regional anesthetic is used.
All of the above treatments are provided by the professional medical staff of Capitol Anesthesiology Association, serving the Austin, TX area. Their goal is to ensure all patients get the best quality medical treatment.
