Anesthesia is an important medical tool used to reduce pain or feeling during medical or surgical procedures. It achieves this by temporarily blocking sensory perception or nerve signaling. Commonly used anesthetics include inhaled anesthetics, such as nitrous oxide and halothane, and intravenously injected anesthetics, such as propofol and fentanyl. Anesthesia is a key tool in modern-day medicine, providing the benefits of pain control and an environment that enables the safe and successful completion of medical or surgical procedures.
