Recovery/Post Anesthesia Care

Recovery & Post Anesthesia Care Unit at Treasure Valley Hospital

The Post Anesthesia Care Unit is comprised of two phases:

Phase I is a calm environment where you will emerge from anesthesia. Here we begin to address pain control, prevent and/or treat nausea and deliver warming therapies. The Aldrete Scoring System is used to evaluate your readiness to move to Phase II recovery where we discuss home care and pain management instructions.
