What job does an anesthesiologist perform during surgery?
SCAI answeredAn anesthesiologist is a medical doctor trained to administer the medications that will take you "under" and block any feeling of pain or unpleasant sensations you might otherwise experience during a surgery. Your anesthesiologist is involved in your care before, during, and after surgery. He or she may do a medical evaluation before your surgery to determine an anesthesia plan tailored for you. During surgery, the anesthesiologist oversees life support and pain control. And after the surgery, he or she also provides life support, including intensive care management if needed. If time allows before surgery, you should discuss the anesthetic plan, as well as alternatives, risks and benefits of the chosen anesthetic techniques, with the anesthesiologist.
