If you have pain and need surgery, you’ll want to hear about this new anesthetic technique called “ComfortSafe.” It’s used for patients who don’t want to or can’t tolerate typical anesthesia with opioids. Using ComfortSafe can also help avoid the side effects of general anesthesia, like nausea, vomiting, and confusion. Our first guest, Chris Bedard, underwent 25 surgeries following a left leg amputation. He often woke up in a daze, or had to wait hours for sensation to return in his legs after spinal anesthetics. But, ComfortSafe changed all that and he’s here to tell us how. Then, Dr. Joseph Myers, a MedStar Georgetown University Hospital anesthesiologist who developed ComfortSafe will share the benefits of this unique technique.
