Description of Phases of Surgery

The operations are divided into two main categories: elective surgery and emergency surgery.
The following phases are for elective surgery only:

  1. Admission – The type of operation determines when the patient is admitted to the department. There are operations in which the patient is admitted for preparation, one or more days prior to surgery. There are operations (usually minor) in which the patient is admitted on the day of the operation.
  2. Preparation for Surgery –Admission is done by the doctor and nurse, and there is a visit to a pre-surgery clinic in which the patient meets the Anesthesiologist.
  3. Ahead of Surgery – The nurse makes all of the final preparations prior to the operation (blood pressure, pulse rate, instructions for the patient, etc.)
  4. The operation – The operation takes place in the Operating Room.
  5. Recovery – Following the operation the patient is transferred to the Recovery Room. The patient is received by the anesthesiologist and the recovery nurse (graduate of an Intensive Care course). In the recovery room, the patient physiological parameters are monitored as needed (blood pressure, pulse rate, oxygen saturation of the blood) and pain relievers (analgesics) are given. The patient is under strict observation until his/her release by the anesthesiologist and the nurse.
  6. Release – The patient is transferred from the recovery room to a suitable department.
  7. Follow up – The follow up is done in the pre-surgery clinic as per doctor's instructions.
