When are anesthetics used?
Generally anesthetics are usually given prior to surgery.

What kinds of drugs are used as anesthetics?
IV drugs such as Opiates(Fentanyl), Benzodiazepines (Midazolam), Barbiturates (Thiopental), Hypnotics (Propofol), are some examples of the medications used to put patients to sleep.

Notes for Nurses:
It is important to remember that the aftermath of receiving anesthetics agents will vary from one patient to the next. Even under the best circumstances, some patients may be more sensitive than others.

Some patients may report feelings of fear and hallucinations after certain medications are given.
