Anesthesia, whether local or general, is required for surgical procedures and certain other types of medical care where the patient is going to experience pain. Local anesthesia targets a certain area of the body while general anesthesia targets the entire body. General anesthesia is complicated and requires knowledge and training regarding the proper dosage amounts to put a patient under and keep him or her unconscious during an entire procedure. It also requires careful monitoring of a patient through the procedure should any complications arise.
