Anesthetic is a drug which causes anesthesia, which is a reversible loss of sensation. The different types of anesthesia drugs are general anesthesia, spinal or epidural anesthesia, interscalene block, IV regional anesthesia, local anesthesia, peripheral nerve block, saddle block or caudal anesthesia, etc.
These drugs are usually used to assist surgery. These drugs are used to produce loss of consciousness before and during surgery. However, for obstetrics (labor and delivery) or certain minor procedures, an anesthetic may be given in small amounts to relieve anxiety or pain without causing unconsciousness. Some of the anesthetics may be used for certain procedures in a medical doctor’s or dentist’s office.
Increasing number of surgeries, development of new sedative & anesthetic drugs, reduction in the cost of newly invented drugs and decrease in the recovery time after surgery are some of the reasons driving the growth of the market. Risk of side effects of anesthesia drugs, lack of skilled anesthetists to administer the drugs and risk of adverse reactions of anesthesia drugs are some of the major constraints hindering the market growth.
This market can be broadly segmented into type and routes of administration. The market is segregated further by type as general anesthesia, spinal anesthesia, interscalene block, IV regional anesthesia, local anesthesia, peripheral nerve block, saddle block anesthesia.
