General Anesthesia: the patient losses his consciousness temporarily under the general anesthesia. In contradistinction to sleep, this is a transitory unconsciousness state achieved by the medications under the control of anesthetist. The sleep duration of patient is determined according the operation duration. The patient awakes following the termination of effects of the anesthetic medications.
Regional Anesthesia: The regional anesthesia is defined by the anaesthetization of the area to be operated with the loss of consciousness. The regional anesthesia can be applied to the operation area or greater nerves in this area; in some methods the injection is applied to the lower back of patients (spinal, epidural anesthesia). While the patient is aware of the operation made, he does not feel the pain. The numbness sensation disappears in a time varying according to the medications used.
