Anesthetic agents are drugs used to induce anesthesia in the patient to avoid pain and discomfort. These anesthetics lead to reversible loss of sensation. These anesthetics are classified into two classes: general anesthetics and local anesthetics. General anesthetics facilitate a reversible loss of consciousness to the whole body while the Local anesthetics cause a loss of sensation to a particular body part to which it administered. In most if the cases, the duration of the sedation will be directly proportional to the amount of the anesthetics given.
