An anesthesiologist is a physician who is trained in the administration


of drugs, pain medicine, to patients who must undergo a procedure or
major surgery. An anesthesiologist is mostly seen in the operating
room although some procedures are performed in the patients room
or other medical suites... They also help patients who experience
chronic pain by maintaining normality in their day to day lives. An
anesthesiologist is present throughout most of the surgical procedure;
from accessing the patient in pre-op all the way to the postoperative
state. The anesthesiologist must be present in case a patient has an
adverse reaction to the medication administered during surgery. Their
job is unique and more advanced than an ordinary doctor or surgeon
since they must be familiar with a patients illness as well as the
effects the illness and medication will have on the body. Often they
will require another level of testing in order to administer the proper
dosage of medications many which cause full sedation.

An Anesthesiology Resident:

Practices under the supervision of an anesthesiologist

Personality traits:
Because the time they spend with patients is so limited and the
interaction may take place in an emergency situation,
anesthesiologists must have good bedside manner and be able to
establish rapport quickly. Good interpersonal skills and the ability to
communicate in a clear, supportive manner are key skills in building a
relationship with patients. Physical stamina and manual dexterity are
necessary for the practice of anesthesiology. The anesthesiologist
may work a 60-hour week, and the working hours can be irregular with
the need to be on call for emergencies. An anesthesiologist may also
need to stand or sit for long periods. Many procedures used by an
anesthesiologist require technical skill; inserting an intravenous line,
spinal catheter or endotracheal tube all need a steady hand and a deft
touch.An anesthesiologist must be able to integrate various factors
into the decision-making process in the operating room.
