Today we talk all things anesthesia with the brilliant and talented Michelle Downing, MD, Cardiothoracic Anesthesiologist and bestie to Dr. Ginny and Dr. Lora. We round out the tori trifecta (coined it!), talk about what general anesthesia does and doesn't do and why you feel so groggy afterward. We also get into lighter sedation methods, why Dr. Michelle totally respects them, and what to ask your healthcare provider if you are getting this type of anesthesia. Also, what is propofol? Dr. Michelle knows! Listen in to find out!
